Akaminko missed out on the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after suffering an ankle injury in a pre World Cup friendly against the Netherlands in Rotterdam.
The 34-year-old’s career has since taken a downturn but he tells Radio Gold Talk Sports about his career fulfillment.
“No way, no way, the injury, I didn’t have much injuries in my career.
“I think that was the biggest one and I think it really set me back.
“But football is life itself and there are so many things to learn, you lose, sometimes you draw.
“You are happy sometimes you’re not because when you leave your country to another country there are so many things you learn as a professional footballer or player.
“So I think I wouldn’t want that get into me and say I regret, no way.
“I think I enjoyed being a footballer and I thank God for being with me this while and making everything happen.” Jerry Akaminko told Radio Gold Talk Sport.
Akaminko is currently unattached after predominant spells in Turkey with Orduspor, Manisaspor Eskisehirspor and Istanbulspor.
