Mohammed Abu not looking beyound loan stint at Rayo

Abu not looking beyound loan deal with Rayo Vallecano

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana midfielder Mohammed Abu appears fed up with life at Rayo Vallecano and is thus not looking to make his stay at the Spanish club permanent.

The 21-year-old has had limited first team opportunities with the Madrid-based club since joining at the beginning of the season on a loan deal.

Abu has started only once for the Madrid-based side this season.

And even though he is content with life off the pitch, the Right to Dream Academy graduate feels his future lies away from the Campo De Futbol de Vallecas as he seeks regular first team action.

“I am not thinking about that (turning loan spell at Rayo permanent),” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“I am concentrating on my game until my loan is finished here.

“As a new player in a new environment, things get a bit difficult but off the pitch things are ok.

“It has been quite difficult for me here.

“I remember in Norway when I played in Europe against Athletico and I was the best player in both the home and away game.

“And now I am not playing regularly. But I still believe in myself.”

Abu featured for Ghana at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations where the Black Stars finished a disappointing fourth.

    When i used to watched Strongodset matches, I knew he wasnt as good as Ghanasoccernet was portraying him. Who ever was behind this did a disservice to Ghana when players like Quincy were drop for no reason. As a Ghanaian I only hope that he improves in the future and become a valuable Blackstar asset but for now he’s nowhere near a Blackstar material

    Abu is indeed one of the prodigies of Ghana football. I first saw him in Ghana’s friendly match against Nigeria last year and he was brilliant. Anybody who has good technical knowledge of the game will see how talented he is. He is a top Black Stars material otherwise he wouldn’t have been invited for the AFCON last year. That’s why Manchester City bought him. It is regrettable he has to be on loan all season. He has to leave that club in haste to show those who doubt him how good he is. You shall overcome your critics, Abu INSHALLAH.

    IF HE WASNTS TO DO ANYTHING TO HELP HIMSELF IN SPAIN, HE MUST MAKE HIS SPANISH PLAYERS LOOK GOOD ON THE FIELD. THE SPAINIARDS ARE RACIST, WE ALL KNOW THAT. IF U GO THERE TO SEEK GLORY FOR YOURSELF, FORGET IT. THEY WILL BENCH U. MAKE IT A POINT TO MAKE THEM LOOK GOOD, AND GIVE THEM ALL THE LORY. MEANING MAKE SURE U PASS THE BALL FOR THEM TO SCORE ALL THE TIME. OTHERWISE, U WILL WARM THE BENCH UNTIL U LEAVE
