Addy wins Guimaraes fans over after impressive debut

Ghana defender David Addy has won the hearts of Vitoria Guimaraes fans following his impressive debut over the weekend.

The 22-year-old produced the solitary strike in the 1-0 win over Moreirense to lift the side to ninth in the Portuguese top flight.

The left-back was playing just his first official game for Guimaraes following his summer switch from giants FC Porto.

Addy’s overall output aside the goal was a major source of joy to the fans who believe their team have acquired a young gem to bolster their defensive ranks.

Cartoon images and avatar’s of the ex Wa All Stars player dominated the front pages of Portuguese sports papers on Monday – with some of the reports blasting Porto officials for letting go the 2009 U-20 World Cup winner.

Addy hardly got a look in at Porto under manager Vitor Pereira.

He was as a result farmed out on loan twice (first to Academica Coimbra and then to Panetolikos) since his arrival from Randers FC two years ago.

He however appears to have finally gotten his club career back on track following his impressive debut on Sunday.

Addy is one of the few players from the world conquering U-20 team in 2009 that have not quite lived up to their enormous talent for a variety of reasons.

    HE SHOULD STEP HIS GAME UP. IM NY OPINION, HIM AND NANA ASARE ARE GH’S BEST BET FOR THE LEFT BACK GOING INTO AFCON 2013 N BRAZIL WCUP. ADDY SHOULD STEP HIS GAME UP AND SECURE A TRANSFER TO A BETTER CLUB IN LALLIGA, EPL, OR EVEN SWISS LEAGUE. THE GUY CAN PLAY. HE IS A SPECIAL LEFT BACK PLAYER WHO CAN DRIBBLE, OVERLAP AND IS TALL SO CAN EVEN USE IS HEAD IN CORNER KICKS…

    I’ve been tracking him for a few years now and i think he is really a rough diamond. He tends to get red cards easily because of his enthusiastic, rough tackles. That is a point he should work on. But futher he is very fast and a real threat going forward. He always likes to score too.
    I think it is good to keep this golden generation of the U20 WC 2009 integrated in the BS as much as possible. I think the following should be able to make it to Brazil: Opare, D Addy, Badu, Jonathan & ofcourse Dede.
