Finnish-based Ghanaian defender, Clinton Antwi has called on government to support and partner Right to Dream Academy.
The FC KuPS left-back believes getting the support from the Ghana Government will help to develop and produce some of the best youth players in the country.
“I wish we have like 10 Right to Dream set-ups around the nation or in every region. It will help because of what they are doing,” Antwi told Accra-based Mothers FM.
“They have produced the likes of Mohammed Kudus, Kamaldeen Sulemana, Ernest Nuamah, Yaw Yeboah, Majeed Waris, Princess Marfo and others.
“The government should support them because of their good works. It’s not only football but they’ve also added education to it because as a footballer you have to take your education serious. School and character is very important. They teach everything at Right to Dream Academy because football is not only on the pitch but you are being taught how to eat and speak well and how to take well of yourself,” he added.
Clinton played for the Right to Dream Academy before joining FC Nordsjælland in January 2018. He spent his first half season in spring 2018 in the U19 team in the U19 league. In the summer of 2018 he trained with the club’s first team.
On 18 July 2018, he made his debut in the UEFA Europa League starting in a 2–1 home victory against Cliftonville.
Right to Dream Academies have links to world-class universities and educational establishments and provide a personal development environment for young people who lack access to schooling and sport.
