Aces promote 'young Mbesuma'


Akosah-Bempah signed his first team contract last week and was on the bench when Aces overcame Maritzburg United in a Nedbank Cup last 16 match at KaNyamazane Stadium on Saturday.

Information reaching this website is that Akosah-Bempah was born in the United States of America to Ghanaian parents but has been in South Africa for the past 10 years.

Stocky in build, Akosah-Bempah has already made an impression on head coach Muhsin Ertugral.

“Nana reminds a bit like a young Collins Mbesuma,” says Ertugral.

Having already been registered with the PSL, Akosah-Bempa has been handed jersey number 37 at the club.

Akosah-Bempah has previously been on a short-term attachment with English club Manchester City’s youth team.
