Auroras Update: Owusu hopes to make the most of national team call-up

One of the promising players coming up from our youth side (Auroras) is Franklyn Owusu and, the young starlet hopes to justify the confidence reposed in him going forward.

The striker is the main marksman in the Auroras set up and has seen his performances improved since he joined our youth side a couple of years ago.

His output for Auroras has seen him earn call-up to the national U-20 team, the Black Satellites ahead of some impending international assignments.

And, Owusu is hoping to step up to this challenge knowing that this could be the platform to launch himself onto the big stage and, he intends to take it.

“I am a very ambitious person and always wants to take up challenges and, I see this one as another opportunity to prove my worth to the national team coaches”, Owusu told Hearts Media.

“I have been working hard on my game even in this Covid-19 period and, I hope to make the most of the opportunity presented me at this time.”

Owusu is rated highly by Hearts’ head coach Edward Odoom who throughout the cancelled season of 2019/20, invited him to train with the first team.

He is on the fringes of being promoted to the Hearts senior team, and, the player believes he can step up to this level to challenge for a place in the team.

Owusu hails from Ejisu in the Ashanti region of Ghana and began his football career with Koto Stars a youth side in Sefwi in the Western north of the country.

He attended the Ejisu Secondary School where he stared for the school team and he idolizes Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer at international level Asamoah Gyan.

We can only hope that Owusu will follow in the traditions of the great Asamoah Gyan to perform for both club (Accra Hearts of Oak) and country, Ghana.
