Ghana teen Fatawu Issahaku trains with Sporting Lisbon senior side for the first time.


Abdul Fatawu Issahaku trained with the first team of Sporting Lisbon for the first time since signing a deal with the Portuguese giants.

The 18-year-old had been training with the junior team before he was handed his first professional contract by the club last week.

Issahaku impressed at the junior side, and this has seen him move to the senior side within a space of a week.

He joined senior members of the team as trained under the supervision of coach Ruben Amorim.

The former Ghana U20 star has signed for five seasons and has a release clause of 60 million Euros.

Fatawu is joining the Portuguese champions from Ghanaian second-tier Steadfast FC in a deal reported to be around 500,000 Euros.

He was named the best African U20 player last year after helping Ghana to win the African Youth Championship in Mauritania.

During the competition, he played all of the Black Satellites’ matches, scoring two goals in the group stages to help his side win the title for the fourth time in its history.

In March 2021, after his exploits with the U20 side, he was given his first call-up to the Ghana senior team as the Black Stars challenged South Africa and Sao Tome in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

He scored a free-kick goal against Uzbekistan when the Black Stars’ B Team played Uzbekistan.

In September 2021, Fatawu made his debut for the Black Stars in a 3–1 victory over Zimbabwe in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifications.
