Five Things Ghanaians Should Expect From The New Defender.

In this article, I will tell you about 5 things that Ghana should expect from the new defender, Tariq Lamptey. We know he has been Great for Brighton and Hove Albion this season despite some injuries and these are what Ghanaians should expect from him.

The first is that he is going to solve Ghana's right-back problem for the next decade. Since Harisson and Samuel Inkoom left the Black Stars Ghana hasn't quite had any dependable right back and we look forward to Tariq Lamptey solving the problem. If confirmed he could be the solution to the right-back problem. I say the next decade because he is young and can play for the next ten years.

Secondly, he is very versatile. His versatility is a plus for the Black Stars of Ghana as his main position is the right-back but he is blessed with the versatility to play as a right wing-back, right-wing, and the midfield and has played in all the mentioned positions for Brighton and Hove Albion under his coach, Graham Potter.

The third point is that Tariq Lmaptey is able to dribble and create big changes in games. He is also a great crosser and can help put balls into dangerous positions for the opponents.

Fourth is his defensive prowess. Tariq Lamptey is a fast player and is difficult to outrun. He is able to intercept and deal with cut-out crosses and these are all part of his qualities. He has 62 tackles with a success rate of 68%. He has blocked 8 key balls and has 55 interceptions and 44 clearances in his career.

The last but not least will be his discipline on and off the pitch. In his brief professional career, Tariq Lamptey does not have a history of indiscipline. He has received some yellow cards but you should expect that from a defender. Off the pitch is he said to show virtues of humility and politeness. He will in no way become a headache for the coach or his superiors.
