Club Brugge forward Kamal Sowah has revealed he did not have a Plan B when he initially joined Leicester City from Right to Dream.
The youngster joined Leicester’s youth ranks in 2018, joining from African side Right to Dream for an undisclosed fee.
He was immediately loaned out to OH Leuven in Belgium before returning to Leicester in 2021 at the end of that spell.
He would fail to make a single appearance for the Foxes in his three years there, instead being shipped out to Club Brugge last year in a surprising €9m deal.
It’s been a rapid rise for the 22-year-old, who has now admitted things could have gone very differently for him, having pinned all his hopes on Leicester.
“I learned to fight from childhood,” he told De Standaard.
“I hadn’t signed here to leave after a year through a back door. I wanted to prove myself.
“That tussle has been in it since childhood. I grew up in Zongo, a village in Accra, where for many it is fighting to survive. Getting away from there is really not obvious.
“But I wanted to fulfil my football dream, also to pave the way for others. When I moved to Leicester City at 18, I had no plan B. Fortunately, there was the support of my parents and brother, they dragged me through.”
