Stars Abroad

Former Medeama defender Ibrahim Yaro is said to be adapting to life at Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and that he is acclimatising well to his new surroundings. 

Yaro joined the USL Championship side on a season-long loan deal from Mauve and Yellows. 

The Ghanaian international is currently on pre-season tour with the side in Salt Lake where he has impressed heavily in training.

"I am very happy to be here. It's a great feeling, a fantastic club with wonderful personalities," he told GHANAsoccernet.

"We just joined and integrating into the squad. I have met some really nice people and I hope to work hard here."

"It's a great club with great ambition and I hope to be part of history. It's a massive stepping stone for me and I hope to make it count."

The former Ghana Under-21 defender was tipped as one of the most established centre-backs in the Ghana Premier League prior to his departure.
