While we had kept the memory of a rather frail boy physically, it is a real athlete that we found, Tuesday evening, on the lawn of Fenouillère. Since he put his bags in Savoy, Godson Kyeremeh is not quite the same player. The young right-angled youngster (21) was loaned to FC Annecy at the very end of the 2021 winter transfer window, in January. A departure, for the moment temporary, felt like an obligation for the native of Melun, totally blocked with the Stade Malherbe (only three appearances with the “pros” in three years, each time in the Coupe de France). A situation accentuated last season by the end of the N2 championship which the “Red and Blue” reserve frequents because of the health crisis.
“With Yohan Eudeline and my agent, we agreed that it would be better for me to go on a loan”
“After discussing with the sports director (Yohan Eudeline) and my agent, we agreed that it would be better for me to go on a loan “, explains Godson Kyeremeh. “Annecy introduced itself. I analyzed the club’s project well, I discussed with the coach (at the time Rémi Dru, now deputy to Laurent Guyot). I felt it was the right solution. It was an opportunity to show Caen that I can fit into another team and progress elsewhere “. Following this first four-month experience, the three parties decided to extend the loan for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
“Before prep, I spoke with Yohan Eudeline again, I don’t think I would have had playing time with Caen. Anyway, for my progress, the best option was to continue with Annecy”, launches the one who wears the n ° 17 with the Savoyard formation. And as much to say that the principal concerned does not regret his choice. “I am fulfilled”. After a period of adaptation upon his arrival (11 appearances for eight starts and two goals), Godson Kyeremeh took the pulse of the National, he who had never evolved higher than the N2. “Last year I struggled to keep up with the pace of the championship”, he admits. All this now belongs to ancient history even if at the start of the season, it was not necessarily won.
A first decisive pass that acted like a click
“I started in the first game but it was a bit complicated (1-1 to Sedan). On one played on a false rhythm. I failed to show off “, tells Godson Kyeremeh replacing during the next exit of FC Annecy (1-0 success at the expense of Laval). “But I came home and signed a die pass”. This decisive pass acted like a click. Since then, three more have followed as well as four achievements. “I had not been so decisive since the U19. I think I justify the confidence of the coach”. And for good reason, the adopted Norman largely contributes to the building of the excellent course so far of FC Annecy. Despite its setback against Avranches 48 hours ago, the Savoy team still occupies the leader’s chair.
“Succeeding in Caen is necessarily in the back of my mind. It would be a source of pride”
However, the ex-Caennais refuses, at present, to speak of accession. “As we are often told, this is only the beginning. We will see what the rest has in store for us. I think that our defeat will serve us in the future. We have not yet set a target. We take game after game “, confides the one who already perfectly masters the codes of the communication of the professional footballer. Whatever the outcome of the National championship, Godson Kyeremeh could, him, discover the games of Ligue 2 next season.
Sooner or later, the question of his return to Stade Malherbe where he is linked until 2023 will be put on the table. “Succeeding in Caen is necessarily in the back of my mind. It would be a source of pride. It was the club that trusted me when I was 15 years old. But for now, I’m trying not to don’t think too much about it “, assures the principal concerned who will, in a few weeks, cross the road of another member of the generation 2000 trained under the colors “Red and Blue” in the person of Andy Pembélé. “He is currently in Créteil. We checked the date a long time ago. Especially since we haven’t seen each other for a long time”. A reunion that will give rise to a sort of match in the match between the two boys, both playing at the position of right-angler.
