I've heard that he was rated very highly after winning youth World Cup with Ghana in the beginning of 90s. He was considered the most talented African footballer and was even compared with young Pele. But he never lived up to expetations. I know that he played quite good at Anderlecht, then went to PSV, then to EPL...and in there he dissapeared. Later he has played in almost every continent, in Prtugal, Italy, Argentina, China, Saudi Arabia...

Was he really exceptionally talented new Pele or was he overhyped based on couple of good performances? And why he never lived up to expectations? Was it because of injuries? Or was the pressure too much for him to bear?
