2013 Ghana under-20 bronze ball winner, Clifford Aboagye, has claimed comparing his career path and that of French 2018 World Cup winner, Paul Pogba, does not move him.
The two players shared the awards stage at the 2013 under-20 World Cup in Turkey that saw the Manchester United midfielder emerge the best player while he placed third-best in the tournament.
The 25-year-old Club Tijuana midfielder remains thankful for getting an opportunity to play in Europe with Granada and believes he can still do more with the years ahead of him.
“To be frank, it hasn’t been frustrating, “he said in an interview with Joy Sports.
“I got the opportunity to go to Europe even though I didn’t get the opportunity to showcase my talent to the world.
“Thank God I have a lot of years ahead of me, that is what I have to concentrate on, rather than thinking about the fact that because I played the same tournament with Paul Pogba and the likes, I have to be there.
“Of course, it is positive to think you can make it to the top, but the comparison is not for me,” he concluded.
Since the 2013 Under-20 World Cup, Aboagye has played for the likes of Granada youth teams, Atlas, Querétaro FC, and now Club Tijuana
