Derrick Kohn happy to join good friend Kwasi Okyere at Willem II


German-born Ghanaian defender Derrick Kohn has revealed that he is glad to join fellow countryman Kwasi Okyere Wreidt at Eredivisie side Willem II.

The left-back revealed this in an interview with the club stating that he feels settled after moving with Okyere and that he already has some good friends at the club.


The 21-year-old born in Germany to Ghanaian parents played an instrumental role as the Bavarians’ second team clinched the 3. Bundesliga title also revealed that he is looking forward to a fresh start to his career in the Eredivisie.

Kohn joined the Tilburg-based team from Bayern Munich II, with teammate Kwasi Okyere Wreidt in the summer transfer window signing a 3-year deal with the Europa League campaigners.

Speaking about the deal to sign both Kohn and Okyere Technical Director of Willem II, Joris Mathijsen said “The coronavirus crisis made it difficult to see people face-to-face. This made it extra special that we had already arranged all this,”

“Wriedt is the top scorer in the 3. Bundesliga. A very goal-oriented striker, who fits well into our system when playing football. We wanted to get him earlier, but last winter he was not allowed to leave Bayern. And Köhn is an offensive left-back, that comes up a lot and has a good cross. He did not break through at Bayern, because he had to compete with a Alphonso Davies, but he fits very well with our football.”
