Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey join Norwegian Club Valerenga on three-year deal

Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has signed for Norwegian side Valerenga.

The Ghanaian international made a return to the Club after signing a three-year contract.

Kwarasey joins Valerenga from Danish outfit Brondby where he made just one League appearance for the Club.

The 28-year-old was at Valerenga before leaving for Stromgodset where he excelled as one of the best goalkeeper in the Norwegian League.

The goalkeeper had previously played for Major League Soccer side Portland Timbers as well as Roseborg also in the Norwegian top-flight.

He excused himself from Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with Ethiopia in order to finalize his move to Valerenga.

On old machine

Adam Larsen Kwarasey started his career in Trosterud before Vålerenga was the next stop on the road.

Here he played primarily junior football and was winning the JET (Junior Elite Tournament) in 2006, but also managed to play six games in 2nd Division before the tour proceeded to Strømsgodset. 

In Drammen, the league title in 2013 before Portland Timbers and Major Soccer League was the next stop for the high-rise last stronghold.

– Vålerenga is my club

Now Oslo and Valle home for Larsen Kwarasey the next three years, the keeper is looking forward to embark on her new life in Vålerenga.

– It’s fantastic to be back. It feels very right and very good, and I’m really looking forward, says Larsen Kwarasey, who has a hairy ambition:

– I’ll take the gold with Valerenga!

Long experience

Larsen Kwarasey was born and raised on Trosterud in Oslo, but has Ghanaian passport and 35 caps for Ghana. In 2014 he stood opening game against the United States in Brazil World Cup.

Oslo-boy has been a fixture on the Ghanaian national team, and stood all his team in the African Nations Cup in winter. A tournament that eventually ended with losses for Cameroon in the semifinal, which later took the gold. 

PS: He’s not available to play in Valerenga before the Norwegian transfer window opens on July 21, but will train with the team until that time.
