Young footballers should get good advisors - Clifford Aboagye

Former FIFA U-20 World Cup Bronze Ball winner Clifford Aboagye has advised young footballers to get 'good advisors' to help in their career development.

The Mexico based midfielder revealed it's not easy making decisions that affect the future of your career as a young footballer.

Aboagye, who was expected to to make waves in Europe after a good FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2013, now plays for Mexican side club Querétaro F.C, a decision he does not regret making.

"To most of the young footballer coming up, decision making is vital," Aboagye told Tv3. "There are times I look back and it is either positive or negative. Sometimes, I also look back and how I could have made it to the top leagues," he added.

"But I also look back and I am grateful," he continued.

"Young footballers should get good advisors in their careers because it is not easy especially when you are coming from Ghana.

"Sometimes they will just give you any contract and if you look at the currency conversion to Ghana cedis, you will jump on it and not seek any proper advice but decision making is vital."

A lot has been expected of the diminutive midfielder, but the 25-year old insists playing regularly informed his decision to move to Mexico.

"I would not say I'm proud of the decision but I think I made a bold step," says Aboagye. "I think I had enough talent to prove myself to get the attention.

"Playing regularly is the best thing and I have never regretted the decision I made," he concluded.
