Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has disclosed he wants more Ghanaians in the Turkish top flight few days after joining Bursaspor on loan from Italian side Udinese Calcio. 

The Ghana midfielder further revealed luring two compatriots David Accam and Patrick Twumasi to Turkey following talks held with them.

Accam is believed to be wanting a move away from MLS side Chicago Fire after two seasons which Badu sees Turkey as the best destination.

“In, football, you cannot do it alone on the pitch; you do your best and others complement so we achieve our targets,” Badu told Olay TV.

“I spoke with Accam and Twumasi, of course we are from Ghana and we all play for the national team. They are my friends; we will see what happens.”

I’m just a footballer; I need to concentrate on the pitch and leave everything to management to decide.”

Patrick Twumasi who plays for FC Astana in Kazakhstan was recently linked with a possible move to Bursaspor.

“Even Twumasi, I spoke to him,” Badu stated.

“I told him I have been here for five days and the team has really welcomed me very well. Most of the players speak English so things have been easy for me.”

“The management and media have been smiling to me and that is a plus. The supporters have been wonderful. That’s what I told them and they are very happy. We will see what will happen.”

The Turkish Super Lig already have the following Ghanaian players this season Joseph Attamah Larweh, Asamoah Gyan, John Boye, Nuru Sulley, Kamal Issah, Elvis Manu.
