Speaking on some mistakes he made in his career, Kofi said, “I got a call-up play for the Black Starlets, but I had no idea. At the time, I was playing in another region. The call-up only appeared in the newspapers because phones weren’t as popular then. I joined them later in training but didn’t get a second call-up.”
