Introduction Omari Forson
Omari Forson was born to Ghanian parents in the UK and played early in his youth career in London with Westham and Tottenham. He was recruited last year, July 1st, 2020, by Manchester United, snubbing interest from Manchester City. In his early years, he trained at David Beckham’s academy, which was based in Greenwich.
He is an England youth international at the u16 level, and he is also eligible to play for Ghana. Omari Forson is a technical player with fantastic dribbling ability and natural balance, he has quick feet and is full of skills to sit down with opponents; he is just like Amad Diallo.
Omari, for sons central position, is on the field as an attacking midfielder but can also play as a right-winger or left-winger, he has been playing for man United u18 side on the right-wing, a position in which the first team lacks options but with Jadon Sancho arrival to fill the position, Forson could push to become a viable alternative, and many academy players like Chong, Amad, Pellistri are natural in that position too.
Omari Forson is a player United is keen to keep pushing and won’t be held back, which made United show faith by giving him a professional contract with the club on August 8th, 2021, wearing jersey no 70. Forson is clearly in a position to succeed, and the coaching staffs are very excited about him.
Arsenal attempted to lure him away from United last year, but they were unsuccessful CLUB CAREER Forson is officially part of the u18 football this season after signing a professional contract and expected to become a starter at this level and start influencing games on a regular basis. Omari Forson has been involved in 27 games so far in his youth career-making 20 appearances in the u18 premier league scoring six goals and assisting 8.
Last, the season was his best, with five goals and five assists in 13 appearances for the u18. That’s recording 14 goals/assists so far, It’s notable that Forson has played in all four rounds of the FA youth cups 19/20 campaign tho he was just on the pitch for 36 minutes combined and had little it no time to showcase his talent, there will be lots of opportunities in the future, and I’m sure Forson will take the chances, each time he has been a substitute, yet it keeps getting clear to us why United have shown faith in his ability and sought to involve him in the team’s run to the semi-final.
Omari for sons ability allowed him to share the field with the club’s brightest prospects, his most significant impact was felt when he stepped up the under-23s at the end of the season and stole the show in a win over derby.
Forson linked up with the likes of Anthony Elanga, Hannibal member, and Shola shore tire and embraced the Jump in quality, not only that but he was also the best player on the pitch by scoring one and providing two assists. Forson has a long way to go, but he is making encouraging progress in his career so far.
International career Omari Forson’s talents haven’t been unnoticed on the national side. also getting rewarded by being called up on April 27th, 2019, to represent the England u15 at 14 year-old playing three games, also getting up to the England u16 on December 2nd, 2019 wearing jersey no ten and playing three games at 15 years old, he is also currently representing the u17 at youth level, which if he has been consistent with obviously get hin called up to the young lions before age 19.
Ghana, on the other hand, will not invite Forson to play for the national youth sides but will make efforts to convince him to play for the senior side when he breaks into first-team football. FUTURE EXPECTATIONS We can say Omari Forson playing at a level above his age group hasn’t flustered him one bit.
A potentially exceptional talent on our hand and could be in for a successful career when he breaks into the first team, should the progress go as expected. There is still a long way to go, and Forson will do well to take his time getting there and keep his head straight and focus his mind on his games.
There will always be opportunities waiting for him, both on the national sides and club sides. Who knows, he might be the next star to break into the first team.
