Ghana youth midfielder Mumuni Abubakar has expressed satisfaction with his two-week trial with English giants Liverpool and believes his performances would earn him a move to the Premiership club during the winter transfer window.
The 18-year old New Edubiase defensive midfielder, who was voted 2010 Premier League Player of the Year by the Sports Writers Association of Ghana, believes he impressed the Liverpool technical team in training during his two-week stint with Kenny Dalglish's side. "They were impressed by my performances during training and the match that I played. The technical team like my style of play, so hopefully they will sign me," the New Edubiase United skipper told Joy Sports. "When you go to trials, they talk to your agent and not you the player. Liverpool is talking with my agent (Oliver Arthur) now. They're impressed with my performances so we should get a favourable response." Abubakar, whose unblemished disciplinary record and performance for New Edubiase in the 2010/11 League season where he didn’t receive a single red-card, was spotted by scouts of Liverpool in November last year while on tour with Ghana’s in Italy where he impressed in a friendly against Serie A side Parma. If the move falls through, Abubakar will be the first Glo Premier League player to directly move to the English Premiership. Lexis Amartey
