Ghana defender Inkoom happy over career revival in Greece after Dnipro nightmare
Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom is delighted his nightmare with Ukrainian side Dnipro over after reviving his career with Greek side Platanias.
The right-back’s career was on meteoric rise when he joined Dnipro after the 2010 World Cup but stalled after differences with the club coach Juande Romas led to the Ghanaian being axed from the team.
Having played in the UEFA Champions League with Basel in the 2010-11 season, things quickly went south after a transfer to Ukraine’s Dnipro, where Inkoom was mostly confined to the periphery.
However, a loan move to Platanias in Greece earlier this year gave him the playing time he needed, and in fact he enjoyed a successful campaign helping the club stay in the Super League after their first-ever season in the top flight.
“I am the happiest person on earth today because my career is simply back on track. You cannot underestimate what I went through during the period I was sidelined at Dnipro,” he said.
“I worked hard every moment on the pitch, at training and in everything. All I truly wanted to do was to play again because that is my job and, most importantly, my passion. God must have heard my cry.”
Inkoom is among the key players for Ghana with the World Cup in Brazil looming.
