“After seeing the best performances by Jordan Ayimbila and George Attram as well as the good relationship with the Accra Lions club, I have discussed with the owner of the club and he agreed to loan Alex Agyarkwa Selangor FC 2 import player.”

“Alex has shown excellent performances and has often been the Man of The Match in the matches he has participated in. He is also a player who has the range of individual skills needed in the team.”

“Besides that, he is also a flexible midfielder because he can play in the number 8, 10, and 6 position well. He also has a dominant left foot and is able to make accurate passes to the striker, besides having good dribbling skills. This will give us an edge in the pattern of play we use now,” explained Michael.

“I put him at Selangor FC 2 to help him adapt to the DNA of Selangor FC like Jordan Ayimbila and George Attram. This move is necessary to prepare Alex for bigger tasks and challenges at this club.”
