However, he chose the former which resulted in Emmanuel Adebayo taking the juicy offer.

“I always say I’m very patriotic. Sheik Mansour had just purchased Manchester City at the time, and they wanted to sign me, but I was committed to the national team. I chose the national team over everything. That’s why some things hurt me. People didn’t understand. But I’m sure after this interview they’ll understand why things panned out that way,” he said in an interview with Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
