Emmanuel Agyemang Badu Biography
He is a Ghanaian professional footballer who currently plays for Accra Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League.
He was born on December 2, 1990 in Seikwa, Bono Region, Ghana. He grew up alongside his brother Nana Agyemang-Badu, who is also a player with Asante Kotoko. Badu began his career at a young age with local team Berlin FC before joining Berekum Arsenal in 2006. Badu departed Berekum Arsenal on 11 July 2008, signing a one-year loan deal with Asante Kotoko.
Badu held trials in England in August 2008 with Middlesbrough and three months later with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Badu has played for Ghana at the under-20, under-23, and senior levels. On May 22, 2008, he received his first call-up to the Black Stars.
Badu made his senior international debut against Lesotho on June 8, 2008, and scored his first goal against Congo in June 2011. Badu was selected for his first Africa Cup of Nations appearance in 2010, when the Black Stars finished runners-up to Egypt.
He returned to the competition in 2012 and 2013, finishing fourth both times.
During a group encounter between Ghana and Guinea during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, Badu flipped up a teammate’s pass from just outside the penalty area and unleashed a mid-air volley to score a goal that was later nominated for the 2012 FIFA Puskás Award (FIFA’s global Goal of the Year award).
Badu was named to Ghana’s squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup after missing the 2010 tournament due to injury.
In 2019, Badu joined Hellas Verona on loan but faced health challenges with blood clots in August. Cleared to play in December, he featured in 10 matches. After a decade with Udinese, Verona signed him on a two-year deal. However, he wasn’t part of their 2020–21 squad and, on January 2, 2021, he terminated his Verona contract and retired.
In July 2022, 13 years after his Ghana Premier League stint, Badu returned, signing with Accra Great Olympics. His one-year deal included a debut on August 17, 2022, leading to a GHALCA G6 tournament win. Unveiled on September 9, 2022, Badu had an impactful five-month tenure, participating in 11 league games, earning Man of the Match twice, before bidding farewell to Olympics.
