Ted van Leeuwen Razak Nuhu

Ο Τεντ Φαν Λέουβεν για τον Ιράκλι Μαϊσουράτζε

Today we signed Razak Nuhu from Manchester City on a 3 year contract. Why Anorthosis is signing a reserve-player from Apollon, some will ask.

Because he has potential, is the simple answer.

With young Constantinos Laifis, we have at present only one left full back. In our system, the wing defenders are key-elements. They must be attackers as well. Because we like to play adventurous football, we like to entertain the fans.

I know Razak Nuhu already many years from the Norwegian League. So, I am not confused by his unlucky spell at Apollon. This things happen in football.  Two years ago, we had in Vitesse also two left backs at the same time. Alex Büttner is in Manchester United now, Patrick van Aanholt in Chelsea.

It was not by coincidence giant club Manchester City layed eyes on Razak Nuhu. Who analyzes him, sees a very accomplished left back. With excellent touches on the ball and able to keep it in tight situations. Puts in briljant crosses from dead balls and moving balls. He is an attacking minded player, he works hard, is a great competitor and is strong in tackling and covering his centre backs.

He has played in Norway three seasons, played in Europe and became already a Ghana full-international player. Like Laifis, he has to develop some aspects, but only experience can help young defenders to the next level.

With both of them, Anorthosis has secured this crucial position with young players with big potential and the determination. Like we have on the right side, with Jason Demetriou and Panayiotis Loizides.

We believe in the youth, we believe in the future.


Famagusta, we will return.

Technical Director
