From the halls of Foxboro Stadium…

Revs Offer Contracts to Two Ghanian Players

Posted by Mike Marshall on February 1, 2009

Both the Globe and the Herald quote Steve Nicol as having offered contracts to a young forward and young defender from Ghana.  Obviously, Nicol doesn’t give too much away beyond that…

“They’re young guys,” Nicol said. “They’re only offers. They might take them, they might not.”

Taking public speaking lessons from Captain Obvious, eh Steve?

Not much to work with, but that won’t stop us from making an educated guess about the identity of one of the players in question…

Name: Emmanuel Clottey
DOB: 8/30/87
Position: Forward
Team: Great Olympics (Ghana)


Leading scorer in Ghana Premier League (2007)

  • Spent time on loan with Wacker Innsbruck in 2007, and six months on loan with Odense BK in January of 2008 before being returned to Great Olympics
  • Hertha BSC Berlin, SC Freiburg, and Widzew Lodz have also expressed interest
  • Has played for Ghana at the U-20, U-23, and Senior National Team levels

And finally, ever since reading this article, I’ve got this song stuck in my head and I can’t get it out.  Someone please help:
