Rashid Nortey is now a Porcupine Warrior and the fans of the club will be expecting him to add his qualities to their midfield department.
However, Ghanasportspage.com brings you how different the Accra-born midfielder is.
What makes Nortey different from all other midfielders in the Ghana Premier League is his ability to resist the press, rarely loses the ball and is never in a hurry, he waits for the right angle and makes the right pass at the crucial moments.
In 2020, Rashid Nortey staged a midfield clinic as his former side, Medeama SC cut through Asante Kotoko with an impressive 2-1 victory in Obuasi in the Ghanaian top-flight.
On that day, goals from Prince Opoku Agyemang and Richard Boadu meant Emmanuel Gyamfi’s for Kotoko was only a face-saving one.
However, it was Accra born midfielder Rashid Nortey who had everyone on edge throughout the game, his range of passing, technique and genuine knowledge of his environment was the platform on which the Yellow and Mauves built their winning formula on the day.
The diminutive pied piper was simply unplayable as he grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and turned it towards Tarkwa.
Nortey’s,112 touches was the highest by any player on the day and his progressive pass range count of 89 is a record for any player in the 2020/21 campaign.
‘’He is simply unplayable when he’s playing in that deep role and has the potential to go all the way to the top if he continues this way,” said his former coach Samuel Boadu in 2019.
