"You will get there soon, son," he posted on Facebook while sharing the photos across his social media pages.

Wakaso Junior is just beginning his football career but comes from a family that has already produced two players for the national team, his father Mubarak and uncle, Alhassan Wakaso.

Mubarak Wakaso is one of the most hardworking players to have represented Ghana, and has played in multiple Africa Cup of Nations and was a member of the 2014 World Cup squad in Brazil.

The former Deportivo Alaves star was also part of the Black Stars team at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon early this year, but failed to make an appearance due to injury.

Wakaso last played for Chinese Super League side Shenzen FC. He is currently unattached and reports indicate he might be returning to Spain this summer.
