Inaki Williams Reckons Playing For Ghana Is An Excellent Decision Made

Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams says he has not regretted playing for the Black Stars of Ghana over Spain. According to him, the decision to play for Ghana has left him in the best snapshot of his career.

The 29-year-old, who was born in Bilbao to Ghanaian parents, played for Spain at the Under-21 level and showed up in a friendly against Bosnia in 2016.

During the back and forth with regards to which country to settle on, Inaki pursued the decision to represent the Black Stars in August 2022 before making his debut for the national team a month after the fact.

Since switching to Ghana, the forward has shown up for the West African side, scoring only once in that period.

Nonetheless, his performance have not been too amazing which has prompted criticisms from numerous Ghanaians. Some actually have a strong conviction he will return to goalscoring in style.

“I would never have imagined this. I had to make a decision and I don’t regret being able to represent the country of my parents and my family, to go back to my origins, to be able to travel more and see my loved ones in Ghana,” he told Club del Deportista in a recent interview.

“It’s true that things didn’t work out as we’d all hoped, but it’s true that on a sporting and personal level, it helped me a lot. In fact, I think I’m in one of my best moments thanks to this decision.”

Inspite of his struggles with Ghana, Inaki continues to join a good run in front of goal for Bilbao scoring 11 times in 31 appearances across all competitions. He also has five assists to his name playing on the wings.
