Frank Acheampong has been named captain of Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda.
The Black Stars winger has made history becoming the first Ghanaian to captain a Super League side in China.
Joining Tianjin on a six-month loan spell, Acheampong was on the score sheet nine times to safeguard Tianjin Teda’s stay in the Chinese top flight.
Acheampong’s 17 goals tally in the 2018 season is the highest by a player in the single season in the history of the club.
Head Coach Uli Stielike’s decision to make the unstoppable winger the new captain is seen by fans of the club as a reward for his hard work, dedication, commitment, exceptional leadership skills and most importantly the quality he continues to demonstrate on the field.
The 26-year-old takes up this challenge and assumes his new role in an away game against Hebei CFFC Monday on Match Day 5 of the CSL.
Acheampong has made 56 appearances after he signed in 2017 for the Super League Side and has directly contributed to 43 goals, scoring 26 goals and providing 17 assists.
