Ghana striker Adiyiah completes move Turkish side Karsiyaka

Posted On Thursday, 21st July 2011

Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah has completed his controversial move to Turkish second division side Karsiyaka.

Dominic Adiyiah has signed a one-year loan deal after his massive welcome

Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah has completed his controversial move to Turkish second division side Karsiyaka.

The 22-year-old signed a one-year bumper loan deal from Italian giants AC Milan.

Adiyiah will wear the No.40 jersey.

The move marks a dramatic drop in fortunes for the attacker who was wanted by several top-flight clubs in Europe.

The former U20 World Player of the Year signed the deal despite his agent’s advice against the move which could jeopardize his national team career.

AC Milan managing director Adriano Galliano forced through the deal for the Ghanaian to play for the club owned by his friend.

”This transfer shows that we are keen on realizing the vision of the club. I thank everyone who contributed to this transfer. It was a difficult period,” Karsiyaka president Nazim Torbaoglu said.

“Adiyiah had offers from clubs in UK and German leagues but I know this place is a good start for him.

“The one who helped us a lot with this transfer was Milan sports director Adriano Galliani our close friend and businessman Ali who helped in many way. We say thank you.

“To the thousands of the our supporters who came out to give him the massive welcome we also thank you because you made Adiyiah like us instantly.”

Hundreds of supporters of the club met the former world youth best player at the Adnan Mederes Airport in Izmir on Tuesday on hearing that they were about to make their biggest ever signing.

The vociferous fans waited for hours to meet Adiyiah and when he landed they broke into singing and dancing while chanting the Ghanaian player’s name.

Fireworks and pyrotechnics also welcomed the striker as extra policemen and security officials had to be called in to control the ecstatic crowd

He was carried shoulder high while wearing the club’s jersey to greet the fans before being whisked away to see the club’s facilities.

The bumper cash move, to the club owned by one of Turkey’s richest men, could severely damage his chances of playing for the Black Stars.

With Matthew Amoah on the radar of Ajax Amsterdam, Italy-based Richmond Boakye Yiadom being considered for the Black Stars and Junior Agogo eyeing a comeback in Scotland, he could fall out of the limelight thus costing him his place in the Black Stars.

    he wants to follow the foot steps of dede Ayew. i personally think this is a right foundation for him.

  2. Jerro,GREECE says:

    @ brother Cofie, certainly not in the wilderness of a Turkish second division. I have been watching people passing derogatory comments about a certain 30 year old John Paintsil joining a certain Leicester team coached by a famous Sven Erikson. I now hear people praising a reigning best youth player for opting to play in a Turkish 2nd tier league and they call progress or development? we shall be watching those who will still play him in the blackstars over those who truly deserve the national jersey.

  3. lee says:

    like i said before he’s a DUMB MOTHERFUCKER!! for that move.what an IDIOT!!

  4. Francis de assisi says:

    Only Ghanaians put themselves down up to this level. How can world class players Adiyiah and Paintsil play in lower tier teams?

  5. Eddie says:

    Guys, its a crazy football world out there O, sometimes I dont blame these players. Its not easy for african players, they face so many obstacles which are sometimes difficult to explain.

  6. sammy says:

    Serve them fucking right!!! When they get small opportunity they think they are on top of the world!! They aint seen nothing yet..better footballer r climbing up every day!

  7. Gbormorhii says:

    why on earth are we talking about advice from his agent?
    for me it was even a wrong move for Adiyah to go to Milan with such cream of players there.
    we can only hope that this move should enable him revive his career

  8. sadat larry says:

    Ghana soccernet.com u always make negative assumptions…if Agogo, Yadom and Amoah are fighting to come to the Black star so adiyiah shd cont. to stay on bench for AC Milan? i dont think so. in the 1st place going to AC milan was not even good for him….this second division side will give him more playing time which will build his self confidence n shape his clinical finish. lets pray for him rather than talking about his chances of playing for the National team. football career is not only about Black stars.

  9. guygeezy gee says:

    ooooooooooooh God shower Adiyiah with ur blessings.
    dis is a good decision God makes a way where thre sims to be noway.Once a soldier always a soldier big up bro it shall be well with u Amen.
