Nicholas Opoku makes Amiens SC second debut barely 24 hours after signing


Ghanaian centre-back Nicholas Opoku made his second debut for French side Amiens SC in their 1-0 defeat to Le Havre in Ligue 2 on Saturday 29th August 2020.

23-year-old Opoku who rejoined Les Licornes this summer was selected for the match barely 24 hours after being unveiled by the club. Although the Ghanaian international impressed on the night, it was not enough to secure Amiens the 3 points.

Opoku returned to the Stade de la Licorne on a season-long loan from Serie A side Udinese after impressing for the French outfit during the 2019/2020 season making 7 appearances for the club.


According to reports, Amiens SC had an option to buy the Ghanaian for €4.5m at the end of his first loan spell but following their relegation to Ligue 2 the 23-year-old refused to accept to join the Picardy side permanently.

Reports from L’Équipe, revealed that Ligue 1 outfit FC Metz were in negotiations to sign the Ghanaian international seeing him as the perfect replacement for centre-back Mamadou Fofana who expected to leave the club during this window, but it seems Amiens SC won out.
