Ghanaian midfielder Enoch Kwakwa is thankful for the vital experience picked up while on loan at Norwegian giants Stromsgodset.
The 19-year-old spent a season on loan in the Eliteserien after joining Manchester City in 2012.
Kwakwa was part of a double City swoop alongside Bismark Adjei Boateng from Ghana’s Right to Dream Academy.
The duo where however unable to acquire work permits in the UK – leading to their loan move to Norway.
Kwakwa now believes joining Stromsgodset served its main purpose of developing his art with the experience he picked up with the side that eventually won the Norwegian top flight.
“My loan deal with Stromsgodset was really amazing, that was the first time going to an European country and when I got there, their type of football was different from when I was in Ghana,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“But I just coped with it. As a footballer you have to get used to any tactical way of play and I did just that.
“Although I left in the summer, I really enjoyed myself there.”
