The 16-year-old talented prodigy announced himself into the Ghana Premier League by featuring for the Hunters.

 

He was named man of the match after an excellent performance in their match against Elmina Sharks in the second round of the season.

 

The 16-year-old acumen and brilliance has secured him International recognition which comes with educational opportunities to further his studies and at the same time continue his footballing career.

 

Owner and bankroller of Bechem United, Kingsley Owusu Achau, has revealed on Asempa FM’s Sports Nite show that the winger will relocate to the United Kingdom in the coming weeks.

 

“We have planned a proper educational system for him in the UK because he is a young player so he cannot abandon education and solely focus on football.”

 

“He will join the Steven Gerrard academy where he will be able to play and study in school at the same time,” he said.

 

The Steven Gerrard Academy, which was founded in 2011, with sites in Liverpool, Tenerife, Alicante, London and more is owned by Steven Gerrard, who is a former English player who currently manages Scottish Premiership club Rangers.

 

The Academy provides a high-quality experience for 16 to 19 year-olds who are interested in pursuing further education and a career in football, such as coaching or other professions within the sports industry.

 

Duodu played in five league games for Bechem United last season.
