The 29-year-old is judging his career while still looking for a new club
Ghana international Christian Atsu believes he has not been able to reach his full potential as he moves into the twilight years of his career.
The 29-year-old is currently not loose and is looking for a new club after leaving Premier League team Newcastle United last season.
He is famously remembered for a big move to Chelsea in 2013, which ended disappointingly without him appearing for the club.
“I know I could have reached a higher level now, because I believe with all my heart, even when I left for Europe, I knew I would play football at the highest level,” said Ada Foah, born . Sportwêreldghana.
“I know this is not my level, but the level I need to be, but there are many things I do not want to reveal.”
Atsu recently unveiled a possible move away from Europe, which reads: “I have many offers, but I think I will leave Europe, but I can say nothing for now.”
The wing developed through the youth system of the Portuguese giants Porto before being loaned to Rio Ave for his first senior season in Europe.
It was indeed a breakthrough campaign for the striker who made 27 league appearances for the Rioavistas, started 23 times and scored six times.
During this time he earned his first senior Ghana call for a match against Lesotho in 2012, with an impressive bow with a sublime goal after arriving as a substitute in the second half. He has competed in several African tournaments and the 2014 World Cup.
Back at club level, he did enough to impress Porto which earned him a first-team place in the 2012-13 season.
After only one season with the Dragons, he was picked up by Chelsea, but the strong competition for venues at Stamford Bridge meant that he borrowed the entire duration of his association with the club and played for Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands, Everton, Bournemouth. . , Malaga and Newcastle United.
In 2017, he helped Newcastle secure the Premier League promotion, after which the club decided to permanently secure its services from The Blues.
Earlier this month, he announced his departure from The Magpies after five years at the club.
