"Kwame Opoku is a good striker; he is very quick and has an eye for goals, and as a striker that is what is required. Once he is able to score goals that's very ok. His signing is in line with what we are looking for."

"Goal scoring has been a problem for the whole country and once Kwame Opoku keeps scoring like this, we would be happy and the supporters would be happy as well."

"He brings something special onboard. Every player has his qualities and Kwame also has the way he plays. His style is not like the others. Kwame brings something onboard that I think would help the team as a whole. He has very powerful shots and he's very good in the air too so he would help us."
