Ghanaian midfielder Latif Atta Blessing  has revealed that he nearly became a taxi driver after he was snubbed by Ghana Premier League side  Asante Kotoko

The former Liberty Professionals who emerged as the top goal scorer in the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season, has been impressive since joining MLS side Los Angeles

The 21 year old who is rated as one of the best forwards to have ever graced the Ghana Premier League side is however doing well in the United States

According to him, he was disappointed after his jersey was taken from him for another.

“I went to Kotoko for justify after someone recommended me to them,” he said.

“For two days, they didn’t even let me train but what broke my heart is that the jersey I wore was taken from me and was given to another player so I had to sit bare-chested.

“I regretted and thought I wasn’t good enough so told my mum to buy a taxi for me to drive”.

Blessing is currently embarking on an Adidas-sponsored project to build a football pitch for the youth of his hometown, Nankese, a village in the Suhum-Kraboa-Coaltar District of Ghana

He helped Los Angeles FC to finish third in the Western Conference of the MLS, scoring 5 goals in 30 appearances.
