Black Stars winger Albert Adomah has been given hope by the rise to fame of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
Vardy was unknown, playing at non-league side Fleetwood Town in 2012, ánd only two seasons after his latest club Leicester got promoted to the Premier League, Vardy’s scored 19 goals so far.
Adomah has also come through the lower divisions and is currently at Championship side Middlesbrough.
“My ambition is to play in the Premier League, so hopefully, I can fulfil that with Middlesbrough,” Adomah told Winner Sports.
“Players like Vardy and [Rickie] Lambert have gone from non-league to compete at the top level. It shows that anything is possible.
“I used to play for a local amateur side when I was 16. I started from the 10th team and worked my way up to the first.
“But then, it was my aim just to make it as a professional, so when I signed for Barnet, I achieved that. I’ve taken it from there and played for Ghana at the World Cup. It’s been amazing.”
The 28-year-old has come through the ranks at Harrow Borough, Barnet and Bristol City. Boro are now third in the Championship league table.
