Ghana midfielder Abu wants to make progress at Lorient
Ghana midfielder Mohammed Abu aims at getting his career back on track at FC Lorient.
The 21-year-old sealed a loan move to the French Ligue 1 club on Thursday hours before the January transfer window closed.
The Manchester City player has seen his once thriving club career gradually retrogress in recent years.
His productive loan spell in Norway with Stromsgodset was not continued since moving to Entracht Franfurt and Rayo Vallecano also loan.
He failed to make an appearance in Germany while playing just three times for the Spanish top flight club – prompting his move to Lorient.
And after being unveiled at a press conference in France on Friday, as a replacement for the departed Alaixys Romao, Abu is thrilled by the prospect of playing in Ligue 1 while looking to get his career back on track.
“I played in Norway (Strømsgodset IF) I’ve won the National Cup, Germany (Eintracht Frankfurt) and Spain (Rayo Vallecano),” he said.
“I am very happy to discover the Ligue 1. It is one of the best leagues in Europe. There is an excellent level and I am very happy to move to the end of the season “ .
“I hope to bring many good things to FC Lorient. I want to progress and help the club achieve its goals. I also want to play as much as possible.
“I watched the team play, I love his style of play and I think I’m going to enjoy my stay here.”
Abu who is a graduate of the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana has already made four appearances for the Black Stars.
