17-year-old Ghanaian youngster Dennis Osei has revealed in an interview with Arirang News TV that he would rather become the first footballer to play for the South Korean national team through naturalisation than play for Ghana.
“People say I’m almost a Korean person and I agree to that because I have lived here for so long and have also learned everything about Korea. I would prefer playing for Korea to playing for Ghana.”
Osei was born in Ghana before moving to South Korea at the age of 7, he currently plays for the Kyemyung High School Soccer Team and dreams of one day winning the Ballon d’Or “I want to become a great soccer player who is famous and also to win Ballon d’Or in the future.” he told Arirang News TV.
The youngster who was the top goal scorer in the Gyeongsang Province Weekend League last year will be eligible for Korean citizenship once he reaches the legal age which is 19.
