Christopher Nettey has revealed the reason he joined Kotoko as he discloses the impact Augustine Sefah is making on his game since he arrived.
The right full-back has told Kotoko Express App, he was motivated by the Porcupines’ history of producing the best right-backs in the country.
Nettey joined the Porcupines from the academy side, Attram De Visser, towards the start of the 2019/2020 season.
Despite coming with little Premier League experience from a short stint with Great Olympics, Nettey ended the campaign, which was cancelled after 14 games, as the Porcupines’ second-most used player with 1116 minutes from 13 games, falling just a game short of Emmanuel Gyamfi who topped the ranking with 14 games.
“I was motivated by the fact Kotoko have produced the finest right-backs as the history of this country will tell you. I said to myself when I had this opportunity that, why not follow the trend and become one of the best?
Nettey’s impressive form has dropped Augustine Sefah down the pegging order, resulting in the experienced right-back making just one Premier League appearance.
Despite the development, the pair has had a good relationship with Nettey corroborating Sefah’s earlier disclosure that he was guiding the former behind the scenes.
“What Sefah said is true,” Nettey confirms. “I am the type of person that does not ignore advice. There is no rivalry between us. We are a family and so always strive to push the club forward together.”
Frank Amankwah, who dominated the country’s national team right-back position in the 1990s, was a product of the club. The Porcupines have in recent years also produced Aziz Ansah, Yaw Frimpong, Harrison Afful, Samuel Nkoom, and Amos Frimpong.
