The 23 year-old striker joined the Senegalese giants on a one year deal and has been registered for the 2018/19 CAF Champions league season.

Talking up his chances and ambitions as a footballer, Kporvi revealed how eager he is to have a taste of CAF’s inter-club showpiece.

“Every player would want to advance in his career and I see this as one of the biggest steps for me. It was great to have a taste of topflight football in my home country Ghana, but it will be greater to play in the continent’s biggest club competition.”

He spent last season on loan at Ivorian topflight side African Sports and says his short spell with the Ivorian giants played a huge role in his move to ASC Diaraf.

“African Sports are an amazing club with rich history on the continent, even though I didn’t spend more time there, it still gave me a big idea of how playing in a big club is like”.

“They have a lot of international players and that’s exactly what I am experiencing here in Senegal. ASC Diaraf is the biggest club in Senegal and full of international players. I will get the opportunity to learn a lot and compete for space with very good players”. He told Ghanacrusader.com.
