Ghana legend Abedi Pele has earmarked fast-rising Nania FC defender Henderson Mayonu for greatness.
Mayonu was an instrumental figure for the Legon-based outfit during the truncated 2017/18 Division One League.
The 18-year-old won raves of praises from Abedi Pele after translating his impressive Nania FC form to Ghana’s U20 team when they defeated Benin 3-1 in the first leg of the Africa Youth Championship qualifier at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in August.
‘Normally I don’t like to talk about our players but before the league was halted Mayonu was in good shape.’ Pele said.
‘His overall work ethics and performance with the U-20 will also encourage him and serve as a motivation to the other guys in the team.’
Black Satellites coach Jimmy Cobblah joined the soccer maestro [Abedi Pele] in showering adulation on the hardworking centre-back in the wake of the return encounter against Benin in September.
‘Mayonu played very well and his composure helped us see out a very difficult period in the game.’
