Asante Kotoko defender Christopher Nettey says he has plans of furthering his education to the highest level.

According to the right back, football is not a life time job hence his determination to combine it with education in order to be able to become an engineer or football scout.

“I have always loved schooling as a young boy growing up, I never missed school because my dad was strict with that through my primary school at Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Institute to senior high where I studied Engineering at Government Technical Training Institute.” He told

“For my father, he preferred I go to school as he wanted me to become an Engineer than playing football. Football is not a lifetime job, it ends at mid 40s, hopefully along my career, I will go back to the classroom to acquire more as I intend to become an Engineer or Football Scout soon”.

Nettey joined Asante Kotoko from tier two side Attram De Visser at the beginning of the 2019/2020 season, and has since established himself as an integral member of the Maxwell Konadu’s side.

He has featured in 13 games and won one man of the match award in the league.
