Samuel Sarfo Joins Iran’s Saipa
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Ghana defender Samuel Sarfo has completed an 18-month deal with Iranian football club Saipa.
The former Liberty Professional skipper was on the verge of joining Ghanaian giant Kumasi Asante Kotoko but the deal fell through after both parties failed to reach an agreement.
Sarfo, who was an influential member of the Black Stars B side that won the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup, was reported to have been closely monitored by clubs in North Africa and Oman but Saipa hired him.
Sarfo was the top scoring defender in the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League with seven goals in 26 appearances, ghanasoccernet.com reported.
