Grejohn Kyei Wants a Black Stars Call-Up : French professional footballer Grejohn Kyei of Clermont Foot says he is going to work hard in order to be invited to the Black Stars of Ghana.
The 27-year old attacker netted 9 goals and made 4 assists in 36 matches in the 2022/23 Ligue 1 season for his team and it represents his most successful season on an individual level.
Kyei was asked by the Ligue1.fr whether he thinks about the Ghana national team and he responded as follows :
“Yes ! Afterwards, for the moment, I have not really been contacted, even if my entourage was approached before the World Cup. I know I’m being watched but I’ve never received a pre-selection. This is my next challenge.”
Kyei has six goals and one assist in his last nine games and he spoke about his hot form.
“This is the reward for all the work I have done since the start of the season. It took a while to materialize but it is paying off. I think that during the March break, I had a little click when my first months were not easy.”
Grejohn Kyei is a product of the youth academy of Stade de Reims. He made his Ligue 1 debut on 12 April 2015 against OGC Nice replacing Nicolas de Préville after 74 minutes in a 1–0 home defeat.
Kyei helped Stade de Reims win the 2017–18 Ligue 2 and promote to the Ligue 1 for the 2018–19 season.
In August 2018, Kyei joined Ligue 2 club RC Lens on loan for the season with Lens securing an option to sign him permanently.
In August 2019, Kyei joined Swiss Super League club Servette FC on a three-year contract.
On 31 January 2022, Kyei returned to France and signed with Ligue 1 side Clermont until the end of the 2021–22 season.
