Medeama Sporting Club (SC) have announced the departure of experienced defender Vincent Atingah Addae, ending his two-and-half year stay at the club.
Atingah, 29, joined the Mauve and Yellows in March 2021 on a free transfer from Kuwaiti side Al Shabab.
The centre-back enjoyed a blistering career in Tarkwa, scoring 21 goals across two seasons to make him the highest scoring defender in the Ghana Premier League.
“It’s got to a point in a man’s career that you’ve got to move on. I leave Medeama with great memories and the club will remain in my hearts,” said Atingah in his farewell message as quoted by medeamasc.org.
“It has been an exciting time in Tarkwa and we take delight in winning the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history.
“To be part of such a monumental feat is great. I wish the club well in the years ahead. Tarkwa will always remain home.
“I want to thank the Club President and his wife, the board, management, colleagues and coaches as well as our fantastic fans for the support and encouragement over the period.”
During the two-and-half year stay, Atingah cemented his place in the team’s history. He helped the team win the 2022/23 betPawa Premier League title and the 2023 Super Cup.
Atingah was also crowned best player in the 2022/23 betPawa Premier League at the recently held Ghana Football Association (GFA) awards.
In a statement, Medeama thanked Atingah for his services: “Atingah leaves Medeama with the deepest respect and warmest appreciation of everyone associated with the club.”
“We are profoundly grateful to Atingah for his immense services to the club and wish him well in his future endeavor,” the statement added.
