Kofi Owusu is set to lead Berekum Chelsea to another Premier League season after their fairytale season was brought to an end by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Owusu played 14 matches for Berekum Chelsea where he netted 4 goals for the side including the winner against Kotoko and Ashantigold away from home.

The former Ghana Premeir League golden boot winner is ready to roar once again for the Bibiries.

Early Beginning 

Born in Kumasi, Owusu started his playing career at juvenile level with Anokye Stars FC, based in Suame.

The young Owusu emerged the goal king during the U14 Juvenile League in the region and immediately became the target of several clubs.

His rise to stardom was catapulted by a wonderful season for King Faisal when he first tasted the Premier League in 2012 with In Sha Allah boys.

He joined Aduana Stars in July 2013 but struggled to make an impact at the Dormaa based club until he moved to Berekum Chelsea.

The goal poacher took the league by storm by winning top scorer award scoring nineteen goals in to the 2014 season.

After two seasons at Chelsea, Owusu signed for Egyptian side Aswan FC where he spent only 6 month before terminating his contract.

He joined Ashantigold and left after just one season following a feaud with then head coach C K Akonnor.

Owusu after a year without a club rejoined Berekum Chelsea at the beginning of 2019/2020 season.

He was part of the local Blacks Stars who  participated in the qualifiers of the 2016 African Nations Championship.

What to expect

Despite the availability of Jordan Opoku, Richard Kissi Boateng, Ahmed Adams and Obed Owusu the experience of Kofi Owusu will be key for the blues upfront.

The 29- year of old with his pace and ability to hold up play makes him difficult to handle.

A lot will depend on him if Berekum Chelsea can defy all odds and win the 2020/2021 season.
