Inaki Williams’ uncle reveals Kwesi Nyantakyi’s role in convincing the Bilbao striker to switch nationality

The Athletic Bilbao after years of indecisiveness on Tuesday announced his decision to play for the Black Stars of Ghana.

Ahenkorah speaking in an interview revealed that the country’s football governing body has been relentless in its quest to get the striker to play for Ghana despite capping once for Spain.

He said it’s a huge delight to finally have him in the Black Stars.

“Former GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi began the process of convincing Inaki to switch to play for Ghana in 2015. We paused at one point for the player to reflect,” Ahenkorah said on Accra-based Onua TV.

“Kurt Okraku [current GFA president] played a key role and has done a good job. I call him honorable, there is one thing about Kurt, he’s a goal-getter.

“Inaki is very good on the wings, very pacy and potent up front as well. I believe his addiction to the Black Stars will be very helpful. He’s very disciplined, though he lives in Spain, his core values are of Ghanaian origin,”

“Inaki is a very focused guy. So his decision to switch to play for Ghana is not a half-baked one. He’s coming to give his all.”

According to him, Inaki is already psyched and aware of the difficulty that comes with playing for the Black Stars.

“Already I told Inaki that in Ghana we have 30 million coaches and must be ready to stand by his decision. I know he is used to the pressure in football,” he said.

Inaki has the chance of being in Ghana’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He is also expected to make Ghana’s squad for the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] doubleheader game against Angola in September.
