Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has paid tribute to one Charles Mensah Gapson, disclosing that it was the man who discovered him.

The Inter Milan star started his football career with Kaaseman FC before joining Accra-based Liberty Professionals in 2006.

Several football pundits have always credited the late Liberty Professional Chief Executive Officer, Alhaji Sly Tetteh, for discovering the 30-year-old.

But Asamoah has claimed that it was one Mr. Charles Mensah Gapson who unearthed his talent and handed him over to the late Sly Tetteh.

“Football was my passion from a very early age. I remember when I started playing professionally at around 17 or 18, some of my friends at the time mentioned my name to Charles Mensah Gapson, who came to see me. He took me to Liberty Professionals. He was very important for me,” the former Juventus star disclosed on Football Italia.

Asamoah has blossomed into a star for Ghana’s senior national team, featuring in four African Cup of Nations as well as two FIFA World Cup tournaments.

He has amassed 70 appearances in the famous white jersey, scoring 4 goals in the process.
