Just like Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi, and many top footballers in the world, Ghana's Kwadwo Amoako has a unique story while on the come up.
Life became very difficult at a tender age for Kwadwo Amoako and had to quit school for the streets after realizing that help won't come from anywhere.
Despite being an integral part of the Ashanti Gold setup since 2019, the defender was once a "trot to" mate in Obuasi before turning a professional.
"Live was difficult when I was growing up, and my dad has not given us the needed attention. So I became a mate to survive and thankfully I was able to pay the school fees of my younger siblings." He told TV3.
"After two years, I decided to pursue my God-given talent which is football, and thankfully ending up Ashanti Gold after few years in the National Division One League." He added.
Amoako gained a call up into the senior national team, Black Stars in 2019 in games against Sudan following an impressive show at club level.
