Aduana Stars midfielder Emmanuel Boateng has completed his switch to Israeli premiership side Hapoel Tel Aviv after a successful trial which spanned for two weeks.
The gifted midfielder signed a four-year renewable contract for his new club and is expected to play a pivotal role in their quest to win the league title this season.
Boateng, who was officially unveiled at the club on Monday, expressed his gratitude to the entire Aduana Stars team and the leadership of the club.
“I am really happy to be part of the Ogya family, thanks to the president, management, coaches, team mates and our fans for your support as I enjoyed a wonderful season with the club."
"Playing in Africa was nice and I am honoured to be a part of this. I wish Aduana Stars all the best in the upcoming season", he said.
After joining Hapoel Tel Aviv, the 21-year-old midfielder said: “Joining a great club like Hapoel Tel Aviv was my dream and thanks to the coaching staff for the trust reposed in me. I will do my best to win laurels with the club.”
According to the Communications Manager of Aduana Stars, Mr Oppong Evans, management is delighted with Boateng’s move and wished him well in his endeavours.
“Thank you for your splendid performance. You fought hard and defended our club and your performance was second to none and we wish you well.”
Boateng joined Aduana Stars this season from West Africa Football Academy (WAFA) and was a regular member of the team that played in the CAF Confederation Cup.
He is expected to wear jersey number 26 at his new club.
Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC currently plays their home matches at HaMoshava Stadium in Tel Aviv. The club has won 13 championships and 16 State Cups.
