Old Ghana’s defender, Samuel Inkoom, has revealed that he decided to ply his trade in Georgia in order to attain a long desire of seeing the well-known Black Sea.
Inkoom joined Samtredia FC as a free agent after seeing out his deal with Bulgarian outfit FK Dunav all through the 2019/20 season.
He was stated to be one of the most costly signings in the Georgian top-flight, having arrived on a deal worth €800,000.
The 31-year-old depleted one season at the club before leaving to enroll in rivals Torpedo Kutaisi in January 2021. The old Asante Kotoko right-back was quizzed on his decision to move to Georgia.
“It was the first season spent in an unknown country, in an unknown environment, in a completely foreign world. Other than that, it was a difficult period for football in general and for the world.”
“I’ve played in eleven countries of the world. When I arrived, I said – I have wanted to see the Black Sea for a long time and this wish came true. But the biggest surprise for me was Georgia and Georgians. I will especially choose my manager Gegi Kikabidze, with whom I became friends and I have some plans for the future. I felt really good here.”
Inkoom has featured for clubs which includes FC Basel, Dnipro, Antalyaspor and Boavista.
