The promising Ghanaian born defensive midfielder has extended his deal with Usuthu after signing a three-year deal with effect from the beginning of next season.
An elated Darpoh had this to say after putting pen to paper: “I feel so happy and privileged for extending my contract with the club that took care of me, a club that gave me a platform when I first arrived in South Africa.”
“It’s with great honour and pleasure that I have committed my future to this club, and, I am very happy with this opportunity.”
Darpoh has 14 matches to his name in all competitions in what has proved to be a roller coaster 2018/19 season for the green and white donning outfit.
The 21-year-old midfielder believes that with a cool head on him, sound mentorship from seniors, it may well be, a matter of time before he propels into the next level under head coach Cavin Johnson.
“It’s been a journey of hard work, coming from the youth structures of AmaZulu, being promoted to the senior side. It’s been a lot of hard work and dedication.”
“AmaZulu is a very professional club and a great club to be with. I remember when I first played my first match for the club in the NFD. The feeling was great, and I thank God,” he said.
The Accra born lad still harbours the dream one day representing the Black Stars, since making his debut for Usuthu in the national first division four years ago.
“I think I’ve improved year by year when I look back from the motivation I get from the coaches, management and teammates that regularly.”
“I’m growing to becoming a better player. Hopefully with God’s favour, and lots of hard work I can become an asset to the club and even my country one day,” said Darpoh.
