Patrick Twumasi to be unveiled to media, Alavés fans on Monday

Newly signed Deportivo Alavés player, Patrick Twumasi, will be officially presented to the media and fans of the club at the Estadio De Mendizorrotza on Monday morning.

Twumasi, who completed a four-year deal with the Spanish La Liga side on Thursday, will hold his first press conference at the Mendizorrotza Stadium, after which Alavés fans will get a first-hand opportunity to know their new star at a "Meet and Greet" session for autograph and photograph opportunities to be streamed live on the club’s website and Twitter page.

The Ghanaian made a dream move from Kazakhstan outfit Astana FC to the Basque country club for an undisclosed fee.


On Friday, the 24-year-old met his new teammates for his first training session at Sports City "José Luis Compañón" (Ibaia).

Twumasi was a hit in the Kazakhstan Premier League, averaging 10 goals a season having scored 43 goals in 160 games for Astana over the last four seasons.

He has made just two appearances for Ghana, making his international debut in 2016 under former Black Stars coach Avram Grant during a 2017 AFCON qualifier against Mauritius.

Alavés, who finished the La Liga 2017/18 season in 14th position, begin the season with a difficult away trip to Camp Nou to play title holders Barcelona on August 18.
