Son of former Ghana captain and coach, Charles Kwabla Akonnor, Charles Jesaja Herrmann has revealed that Michael Essien is his favourite Black Stars player.
The KV Kortrijk attacker, who is in the country for holidays disclosed that he admires the former Chelsea star and looked up to him while growing up.
Explaining why he snubbed his father and chose Essien as his favourite, Jesaja Herrmann indicated that he did not see a lot of C.K Akonnor during his playing days.
“It is Michael Essien,” he answered when asked about his favourite Ghanaian player. “I only saw clips of my dad,” he added.
Jesaja Herrmann has represented Germany at youth levels, playing form the U16 to the U19 but he is ready to switch allegiance.
The 22-year-old joined Kortrijk in the summer of 2021 and made 13 appearances in the Belgium First Division last season.
The striker began his career at Wolfsburg – a club where his father achieved legendary status – before making a move in 2021.
