- The former Inter Allies player wants to feature for Chelsea
- Kpozo made his debut for the Black Stars versus Madagascar
Black Stars debutant, Patrick Kpozo has opened up on his dreams of playing for his favourite club, Chelsea.
The Sheriff Tiraspol left-back played his first game for the Ghanaian national team in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar on Sunday.
The former Inter Allies player enjoyed a good season with the Moldovan giants, helping them win the domestic double.
His outstanding performances caught the attention of Black Stars coach, Chris Hughton, who gave him his debut in the AFCON qualifier in Antananarivo.
"Very happy to have made my debut for the national team. Dreams come true. This isn’t what we wanted. Played on bad surface and difficult to play. Next game we will surely put a smile on the face of Ghanaians," he wrote on Facebook, per Ghanasoccernet.
Having spent two seasons in the Moldovan league, Kpozo is hoping for a dream move to England and the Premier League.
"I want to play in a competitive league. My dream club is Chelsea; I’m a Chelsea fan," he said, as quoted by Kickgh.com.
Kpozo played under former Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, during his time with Swedish outfit, Ostersunds.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that FC Nordsjaelland forward, Ernest Nuamah was handed a Black Stars debut by coach, Chris Hughton.
Sheriff Tiraspol's Kpozo also started as Ghana played to a goalless draw in Antananarivo while Nuamah came on in the second half.
The defender was making his first appearance for the national team after the absence of Gideon Mensah, who failed a late fitness test.

The Black Stars maintain their place at the top of Group E but will have to beat the Central African Republic to reach the 2024 tournament.
Only two points separate the top three sides in the group, which means Ghana, Angola, or the CAR can qualify for Ivory Coast 2023.
