                                          Botey is better than Asamoa gyan.see he scored a goal from the center in the confederations in south Africa.

                                              I feel sorry for this guy. I was there in Switzerland when he insisted going back to Ghana to play for Hearts against Kotoko. After the agent who brought him from Ghana pleaded with him to stay, insisting that he has found a club for him. The guy wept, but he insisted going to Ghana. I can feel his bitterness now.

                                              $50,000 from the south african team was too small for you. They really didn't value you.

                                                He was talented, from listening to him, I believe he was a victim of he's own arrogance, if he was humble and focused on his talent, he would have been elevated, he's under achieve on the international front, and yet he think he's the greatest footballer to ever emerge from Ghana? I rest my case. I hope you've learnt for the sake of your children. Make sure they represent Ghana and follow the foot step of the greats that has emerge from the motherland.

                                              This is the first time I'm listening to Dong Bortey whom I stay just close to his home.
                                              His second born whom we use to call him Dong plays superb just like the father. He dribbles everyone on the field with excellent skills he displays.
                                              With the corner to goal scene, I never believed until 2015 he at Nungua town eleven, enlightened my eyes.
