Abedi Ayew Pele, a three-time African Footballer of the Year, has recommended Ghanaian wonderkid Ernest Nuamah as a talent to keep an eye on.
The 58-year-old stated that after watching video clips of Nuamah, he is sure the winger will grow into a fantastic talent.
Nuamah joined Nordsjaelland from the Ghanaian Right to Dream Academy and has been in commanding form during his first season in Europe.
The 19-year-old has dominated the Danish top division, tallying 10 goals and four assists across all competitions.

Nuamah impressed Ghanaians when he played in the Black Meteors’ 2023 U23 AFCON qualification playoff against Algeria.
The teen sensation was a lively presence in Annaba in the first leg and supplied the crucial assist for Abdul Fatawu Issahaku’s winner in the second leg as Ghana won 2-1 on aggregate to qualify for the U23 AFCON.
In a tweet, Ghanaian legend Abedi Pele stated that he has seen enough of Nuamah to believe he will be successful.
“I have had the chance to watch the clips of this maestro! He will be great. Seen,” the former Marseille star tweeted.
