Silverware vindicates Helegbe return



Asante Kotoko midfielder Michael Helegbe says that he has been vindicated in deciding to play for the Porcupine Warriors after his return to Ghana from Europe.

Having been in Europe for a few years following a long spell with Liberty Professionals, the former Black Meteors captain returned to the country to rejuvenate his career.

Since joining Kotoko last season, Helegbe has bagged three trophies already - two Super Cups and a league title.

He now feels that coming back home following stints with Guingamp and Oostende was a good call.

"I was in Europe and I decided to come back and it has proven to be a good thing. My contract run out and I returned to Liberty Professionals. After one season Kotoko came for me and after discussing with some key people and my family, I decided to go there."

After playing and winning silverware under Masud Dramani, Helegbe also tells supersport.com that he doesn’t think his playing style has changed much.

"It has not changed much but for me I think every club and every coach have their own system, and I am simply playing the way my boss is asking me to."

He was speaking after helping Kotoko to win the Champion of Champions trophy on Sunday.
