Striker Benjamin Bernard Boateng moves to Egyptian club Al Ittihad Alexandria

Elimina Sharks striker Benjamin Bernard Boateng moves to Egyptian club Al Ittihad Alexandria.

The enterprising striker signed a three-year deal with the Egyptian side.

The 20-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Asante Kotoko ahead of the 2021/22 football season in Ghana.

Boateng played a huge role in ensuring the club prevented relegation in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.

Boateng scored eight goals in 25 games with Sharks and won five Man of the Match awards, including the game against Kotoko on the last day of the season at Len Clay Sports Stadium.

With Kotoko losing strikers Augustine Okrah and Naby Keita, Boateng was one of the strikers the club were seriously in talks with but opted for greener pastures.

He is the second player to join Ittihad after Bechem United captain Moro Salifu also signed a three-year deal with the club two weeks ago.
