Seth Konadu

CAF Confederation Cup winner Seth Konadu has wowed never to sacrifice his nationality on the altar of compromise, despite intense pressure from the Tunisian FA.

The CS Sfaxien right back has consistently been pursued by the Tunisian Football Federation for a nationality switch, but the defender has turned his back on the North Africans.

He has put up splendid performances since joining the Tunisian top flight close to five years ago. In 2010, his side lost the same trophy they won last week at the expense of TP Mazembe on a 3-2 aggregate to Etoile Du Sahel.

?It is true that the Tunisian Federation has pursued me on many occasions to play for them, but I want to play for Ghana. It is the land of my birth and I believe there is so much in me to put at the disposal of the national team.

?If the opportunity presents itself, why not? I will play for the Black Stars. I am sure I have what it takes to justify myself, and I know that day will surely come,? he said on Happy FM.

Konadu pointed out that clubs in Europe, specifically France and Belgium, have expressed interest in his services.

The 23-year-old has therefore hinted that he will not extend his contract with the Tunisian giants.

The Confederation win, making the Tunisians $660,000 richer, pits Sfaxien against Al-Ahly in their Orange Super Cup next year.
