Ghanaian winger Fatawu Issahaku to be included in Sporting CP’s preseason squad

Ghana international Abdul Fatawu Issahaku will be part of Sporting CP’s preseason team, Footballghana.com can report.

The 18-year-old, who joined the Portuguese outfit in February is expected to feature for the club next season.

Issahaku will be making his first team appearance in the upcoming season after signing a five-year deal with the club.

Former Ghana assistant coach, Maxwell Konadu who had stints in Portugal in an interview indicated there is great expectation from Issahaku in the West African country.

“He’s a different type of player. When he started in the national teams, he broke all age records in the national team. I remember that when I was in the under-17s, the team didn’t qualify in the tournament in which it participated. They returned home early, did not qualify. But some of these players were chosen to go to the under-20 team at another tournament. He ended up being the best player in the competition. He is a special talent,” the former player Uniao de Leiria player told TSF.

“He plays very well from the right side. Along the line, when he isolates himself against the opposing full-back, there he can always create something. He has a powerful left foot, so he can always shoot from afar. From a free-kick, when he takes the shot, surprises for the strength it has for its age, for its potency.”

Issahaku was part of Ghana’s squad at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon early this year.
