Leweling plays in the Bundesliga II for SpVgg Greuther Fürth and has made five appearances in the ongoing campaign for his side.

The German-born forward is the only debutant in the squad named by Ghana coach Akonnor for the 2021 AFCON qualifier next month.

Shedding light on why he named Leweling in his squad for the double-header, CK Akonnor told GFA Media:

“He is a young man who is all over the place with lots of teams interested in him because of what he has done. He is growing very fast.”

“He just got a chance from the second team and now he is with the first team.”

“He’s been a player I believe is a hope for the future. He is one of the guys that we can have because he’s young, 19 years of age and he has had the chance to play for the German national team and so we are looking at how we can also get him on board to also help us in the future.”

He’s somebody I believe if not today, he’s going to be the hope for our future and that’s why he’s here.”

On whether he has spoken to Jamie

“As we speak now, I have spoken to him but I haven’t assured him.”

“I went to Germany to watch him because he was also recommended by our technical director (Bernhard Lippert). Nobody had an idea, but he said he is a good talent and so we have to watch him.”

“So, I went to see him play, it was not enough but the two matches that I saw, I think it’s a good opportunity for him to also come here and showcase his talent but I believe he’s one good talent, hope for the future.” He ended.
