Ghana defender, Patrick Kpozo has revealed how former Chelsea boss, Graham Potter brought him to Swedish club, Ostersunds.
Potter, while managing in the Allsvenskan with Ostersunds between 2011-2018, scouted Kpozo from fellow top flight side, AIK who had wanted a loan move for the Ghanaian.
The former Brighton manager however wanted an outright deal and he succeeded in securing the service of the former Ghana Youth international.
Kpozo, who had his first national team call up under Chis Hughton, spoke on GhanaWeb’s Sports Check.
“Graham Potter said, this guy is a very good player and he brought me, like he didn’t want a loan move, he wanted to buy me so he bought me from AIK to Oestersunds,” Patrick Kpozo said.
“He has been a fantastic coach, he took us to Europe we played against Arsenal, Atletico Bilbao, Hertha Berlin, PAOK, a lot of big clubs, I’ve been to those games but I couldn’t play because I was a new player.” Patrick Kpozo told GhanaWeb’s Sports Check.
The 25-year-old spent a year-and-a-half at the Capelli Boys before being snapped up by AIK Stockholm.
Kpozo, who plays for Moldova club, Sheriff Tiraspol has had loan stints at Tromsoe and IFK Lulea in between a permanent move to Ostersunds FK.
He was a member of Ghana’s U-20 squad that played at the 2015 FIFA World Cup in New Zealand.
