Reports picking in the local media indicate that former Asante Kotoko, Medeama and Liberty Professionals midfielder Kwame Boahene has retired from football at the age of 28.
The dribbling midfield gem joined Asante Kotoko in December 2016 on a three-year contract, a deal that expired in December 2019.
Boahene, popularly known as ‘Zambrotta’ has been without a club since leaving the Porcupines in 2019 and is currently in the Netherlands.
Boahene scored 16 times in his three seasons for the Yellow and Mauve before moving to Asante Kotoko in 2017/18 season for a fee around $50,000, and went on to win the FA Cup in 2017 as well as NC tournament in 2019.
Injuries soon started to affect Boahene at Kotoko and limited him to few game time. As a result, he was unable to regain his place in the team and left out of the club’s new registered players for 2019/20 season.
He then traveled to Netherlands and after several consultations, he has opted to bring down the curtains in order to pursue his interest in a different profession in the European country.
