The former Ghana Premier League topscorer has been lauded by the ace English Football Commentator following his exploits in the Major League Soccer.
English Commentator, Jon Champion has showered praises on Ghanaian winger Latif Atta Blessing for his stupendous output in the American top-flight league.
Blessing has been tremendous in the MLS — with Sporting Kansas City and Los Angeles FC — since his arrival from Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals in 2018. 
The English Commentator is hopeful that Blessing will attract interest from top clubs in Europe in the coming years.
He was signed by Sporting Kansas City after winning the Ghana Premier League topscorer award after the 2017 season.
Following his performance at Sporting Kansas, he was signed by MLS newcomers Los Angeles FC ahead of the 2019 season with the MLS Expansion draft.
At Sporting Kansas, the speedster has bagged eight goals with 10 assists in his 61 appearances in the MLS and also won the US Open Cup with Sporting Kansas City in 2017.
“There is a young Ghanaian player who’s caught my eye in the MLS at the moment and his name is Latif Blessing,” Champion told Empire FM.
“I think he’s got a very good potential of having a brilliant career in Europe. I really enjoy watching Blessing."
“There’s nothing off about him. He came to the MLS from Liberty Professionals and played out as a winger and did okay."
“However, currently, he’s been converted into a box-to-box midfielder and he’s doing amazing stuff there.”
“He is a dynamo, full of energy and provides the drive for what is a very good team in LAFC. For me, Latif Blessing was the standout player [in that side] last season.”
“At his age, 23, he’s got so much promise ahead of him and I’d be surprised if he doesn’t get a move to Europe soon.”
Blessing has scored 13 goals in his 78 appearances for Los Angeles FC so far.
He is yet to make a debut appearance for the senior national team of Ghana.
