  • July 2005: Akwasi Nana-Asare transfered in belgiums second division from Royal FC Antwepen to KV Mechelen
One of the youngsters groomed in the Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord Football academy stables.
The young offensive midfielder, and occasionally played as a left winger, has really proved he has an ounce of genius in his boots.
His sultry skills, busting pace, irrepressible confidence and defence splitting passes has been rewarded with the captain band of his club, KV Mechelen in the Belgian 2e Klasse (Ghana’s version of the division one league) for this season.
In his second season for Mechelen, Nana Kwasi, recuperated from an injury to be voted as the most popular player in the 2e Klasse league and his award was champagne and a bouquet of flowers.
His sojourn in Europe started in 2004 where he was attached to Antwerp football club in the Jupiler league at the age of 18.
He then moved to his recent club after one season where he has blossomed to polish his football skills.
He was identified in 1998 by the technical team of Fetteh Feyenoord headed by diamond-in-the-rough polisher, Sam Arday. It was during the 1998 Regional under-12 football festival in Kumasi.
Then a player of Kumasi Cornerstones, he played for the host region and later crowned champions, Ashanti. Interestingly, he played as a defender in the tournament and was adjudged the best defender of the tourney. He played only four matches for the soccer academicians during their debut in the 2004 Novelty premier league.
At 20, he started fraternizing with his role models as he played for the Black Stars in their World Cup warm-up matches against French ligue 1 side Nice and Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart. He put up a superlative performance to receive laudatory remarks from the Ghana Football Association chairman Kwesi Nyantakyi.
With this modest achievement of this budding star, he has immutably given credence to the popular saying: ABILITY BUT NOT AGE. He has received several offers from some Jupiler league sides and Eredivisie sides but the young chap is targeting a move to the premiership
