EXCLUSIVE: UAE club Al Dhafra terminate contract with Ghana striker Emmanuel Clottey

Ghana striker Emmanuel Clottey has had his contract with UAE top-flight side Al Dhafra cancelled after just six months at the club, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The contract termination is the latest setback in the career of the 26-year-old who was farmed out on a season-long loan deal at the beginning of the season by Tunisian club Esperance Sportive de Tunis.

Clottey was hoping to get his club career back on track by convincing Al Dhafrah coach Abdullah Ahmed Mesfer of his quality and eventually land a permanent deal.

The ex Berekum Chelsea striker has however failed in his bid to prove himself in the UAE top flight in his six-month stay where he played 12 games and scored four goals.

Clottey will now have to revert to Esperance who bought him after a highly productive 2012 season in the CAF Champions League where he scored 12 goals for Berekum Chelsea to emerge the competition’s top scorer.

Al Dhafra have already signed Brazilian striker Jose Rogerio Oliveira to replace the Ghana international who has since left the UAE club.

Clottey has had very little luck on his travels abroad having proved himself in the Ghanaian top flight in times past.

His first move abroad to Wacker Innsbruck after winning the top scorer award in the Ghanaian top flight in 2007 while with Accra Great Olympics proved a spectacular failure.

Subsequent moves to Odense Boldklub and Tema Youth were counterproductive until he joined Berekum Chelsea in 2010.

Clottey played for Ghana at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations where he was also one of the players who missed a kicked in the penalty shootout defeat to Burkina Faso in the semi finals.

    Very poor striker see how gyan is scoring goals for fun in UAE , clottey is part of the reason we failed at the last Alcon.

  2. askantwi says:

    Yes, and those idiots hearts of oak fans were advocating for his inclusion in the black stars set up. The same way they doing for Jordan Ayew now. Akwasi Appiah should be bold enough to ignore such ridiculous calls in the future. He should do what he thinks is right, and let everyone else go to hell.

  3. koffers says:

    You can’t compare clottey to jordan.

  4. real Sabacious says:

    This is what I have been talking about, those are the kind of players Akwasi Appiah prefer. I have nothing against inkoom and Afful, If indeed AA want to make impact in Brazil, he should drop both players. Opare and Adam info are the suitable players for the right full back and wakaso on the left back supported by either David addy or baba rahman

  5. Kobby says:

    What has Jordan and clottey’s inclusion in the BS got to do with hearts of oak moron, AA can chose to select his wife and kids to play if he wins credit to him if he doesn’t criticism would flow, that’s wat football is all about, top coaches n teams get critised so grow up u fool

  6. papa nkrumah says:

    Please all those calling for Wakaso to play as left back for GH simply want our downfall. Look at the fouls and cards he attracts in almost every game. He is not that disciplined to stop opposing attacks cleanly without committing a foul. We can’t afford to concede penalties and free kicks too close to our goal. As for Jordan lets actually watch him and his overall contribution to the team before judging him. A player doesnt always need to score to prove his worth. Gyan scored only one goal or so at the last Afcon but he was recognised by caf as one of the best in the tournament. Thank you.
