It is fair to say that Nana Poku of Arsenal FC Berekum and Abdul Wahab of King Faisal Babes, have been revelations so far in the 2010-2011 GLO Premier League. Eleven rounds have been played and Poku already has five goals to his name, while Wahab has scored six. Both players are rather unknown players in Ghanaian football and in previous posts I have written about problems I have finding information about these players. Thanks to some connections in Ghana, I am now able to publish some basic information that hopefully could be helpful for football fans in Ghana. 

Nana Poku is apparently an attacking midfielder but can also play as a striker. As far as I know, he joined Arsenal before or during the season 2009-2010, apparently from West Ham United FC from Dominase. I know that Nana Poku played for West Ham United FC in 2008, while the club was playing in Division One League – the second level of Ghanaian football.  Nana Poku is born 01.09.1988 according to my sources. He is arguably the biggest star of Arsenal FC Berekum at the time of writing.

Abdul Wahab, a striker, is playing for King Faisal Babes and has been in impressive form all season, especially in the last four games where he has scored a total of five goals. In 2009-2010, Wahab was playing for Universal Stars FC, another club in Division One League – the second level of Ghanaian football. He has apparently played for a club called “Young Stars FC” before this, as well as for the youth side of Obuasi Goldfields (now AshantiGold SC). According to my sources, Wahab is born 30.07.1989.
