Korean club confirm signing of ex-Mariners winger

Former Central Coast Mariners flyer Kwabena Appiah has completed his move to the K-League, with Incheon United confirming his signing on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old left the Mariners last week after agreeing terms with the side from the top tier of football in South Korea.

“I am really excited, this is a dream come true,” Appiah said last week.

“This came out of nowhere really and everything has happened so quickly.

“Before I came to the Central Coast Mariners my career wasn’t moving in the direction I had hoped. My move to the Mariners has really ignited my career.”

Appiah returned to the Central Coast Mariners in July 2016 after previously winning a Foxtel National Youth League with the club in 2011.

During his time with the Mariners, Wellington Phoenix and the Western Sydney Wanderers, Appiah has made 79 appearances in the Hyundai A-League.

He first caught the eye of the Asian football market after playing a crucial role in the Wanderers’ 2014 AFC Champions League campaign that saw the lightning-fast attacker take home the club’s ACL Player of the Year award.
