Ghanaian-Italian Small Forward/Shooting Guard Awudu Abass has expressed some level of frustration regarding a potential transfer this offseason.

Abass concluded a truncated 2019-2020 season with Germani Brescia and ranked third in the Italian Serie A with a record of 14 wins and seven losses.


The season was cancelled after several weeks of suspension due to the corona virus spread in Italy that caused over 20,000 deaths in the European nation.

Abass excelled in his second season at Brescia averaging 14.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists and has become a prime target for fellow Italian side Virtus Bologna and foreign clubs including Russia’s Unics Kazan.

However, the situation has been far from straightforward and the 6 foot 6 inch player touched on the matter in an interview with La Provincia di Como.

“Italians cost more and managers prefer to throw themselves on foreigners for more important? An excuse. In my opinion it is an excuse. In the end it it true that not many of us are the protagonists and play in A, but the contracts now are very different from those of the past” he said.

Abass’ father is a Ghanaian.
