I needed this challenge - Agyemang Badu

Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says the thought of challenging himself in a new championship prompted his move to Bursaspor.

The 26-year-old ended his seven year stay with Udinese following his switch to Bursaspor on a season long loan with the option of making it permanent.

And in an interview with Happy FM, the former Asante Kotoko midfielder reiterated that his desire to test himself in a different championship played a key part in his decision.

“Life is all about challenges and as a man you need to challenge yourself in life so when the Bursaspor offer came I didn’t hesitate to go for it.”

Badu was in awe with the competitiveness of the Turkish League after making his debut for the side's 1-0 defeat at Istanbul Basaksehir over the weekend.

“I never knew the Turkish Lig was that competitive until I came here. There are a lot of quality players from across the globe playing for different clubs in Turkey so in terms of quality I can say it’s one of the best.”
