Francis Amuzu, an attacker for Anderlecht, has said categorically that he will play for Belgium instead of Ghana.
The young forward, who was born in Accra, has participated in youth competitions for Belgium.
The Ghana Football Association [GFA] has pursued him because he has not yet debuted for Belgium’s senior team.
The youthful winger has stated, though, that he has no desire to represent the West African nation.
The 22-year-old is determined to gain a roster spot with the Red Devils prior to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Amuzu told Het Nieuwsblad, “They contact my broker daily, but I do not answer.”
“Look, I was born in Ghana, and the African ambiance makes me feel right at home there. My athletic allegiance belongs with Belgium. With Belgium, you may go very far in such a World Cup, but with Ghana, you have a serious danger of being eliminated early.”
Transferring overseas could improve his prospects of playing for the Red Devils. “I have a plan for my career, but we’ll see. I had hoped for greater playing time at Anderlecht, but I need to prove myself first.”
Anderlecht’s Amuzu scored nine goals and three helpers in 37 appearances this season.
