Tema Youth Chief Executive Winfred Osei Parma has touted the credentials of Emmanuel Clottey and insists the striker is not operating at his full potential.
The 24-year-old continued his rich vein of scoring form by netting a brace in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at TP Mazembe in the second group game of the Caf Champions League.
The former Odense BK and Wacker Innsbruck attacker has consistently warmed the bench of the Black Stars but after his goal scoring exploits, there are many who believe it’s time to give him a starting role in the team.
His skills, rate of knots, deadly strikes and goal scoring prowess have contributed significantly to making him a powerful goal scoring brand on the continent.
But the Tema Youth boss insists his former employee has not hit his best form yet.
“I can say that Clottey is not in the best of form yet. He has not fully realised his full potential,” Parma said
“If he is operating at full length, he is simply unstoppable. When we brought him to Tema Youth, we knew he was the best at his position,”
“All we need to do as a country is to encourage him and give him all the needed support. As far as I am concerned that is what he needs and he will continue to explode,”
“But trust me he hasn’t shown anything yet. He is yet to peak and when he does, we will all be living testimonies of his immense talent.”
He is the leading goal scorer with 11 goals from seven matches and just two goals shy of equaling Nigerian Stephen Worgu 13 goals haul set in 2007.
