Ghana might be keeping tabs on Athletic Club’s Inaki Dannis Williams over a possible nationality switch but the 21-year-old has hinted he could favour West African neighbours Liberia.
Inaki, who currently plays for the Spanish U21 side, is being hotly pursued by Ghana’s Football Association to commit his international future with the Black Stars as his father hails from the West African country.
But the forward also owns part of his heritage to Ghana’s border neighbours Liberia. And, the talented youngster had expressed his desire to travel to Liberia to establish a bond with his mother’s country.
“I want to travel to the Liberia to be with them and let them feel proud for all the support they have shown me,” he said in an interview.
Surprisingly Inaki did not talk about his Ghanaian roots despite the interest shown by the Ghana Football Association to cap him at international level.
Inaki enjoyed a fine season with Athletic Club and scored in every competition he featured this season including the Uefa Europa League, Spanish La Liga and the Spanish Cup.
I am mentally strong. I wanted to check and saw that the goals were not coming. “In high competition, it is harder to get because the opponents are more over and let you think, but it could not lower the arms and I had to continue to grow and try to help the team with my game or giving passes,” he said.
