Kuffour raring to go

29 August 2012

Jo Kuffour says he aims to do his talking on the pitch after agreeing a short-term deal with the Wanderers.

The striker, 30, joined the Blues yesterday (Tuesday) and was immediately involved, playing 65 minutes of Wycombe’s 1-1 draw with Luton Town at the club’s training ground. 

“I’m very pleased as it had been a long summer and a long break. I’d like to thank God for this opportunity and without him it wouldn’t have been possible,” Kuffour told Chairboys Player. 

“I’ve now signed a short-term deal and just want to get back out there. I’ve missed it a lot and I just want to show what I can do again. I’ll always give 100 per cent and I think I create as many goals as I score. 

“I just want to get on the field of play and show the fans, rather than say, what I can do. Actions speak louder than words so I just want to get out there and start playing. 

“I’ve just been training by myself since the end of last season. That’s a tough thing to do, but I’ve been training every day and I feel fit. I just need to get my match fitness now but that will come with games.” 

Gary Waddock has been a long-term admirer of the striker and Kuffour says he cannot wait to play under Wycombe’s manager. 

He said: “I’ve known Gary for years, since he was at QPR and I was a young boy. I think he’s a great manager, a great guy and a great man manager. 

“I’ve always liked the way he has played football and I’m very much looking forward to it.” 

Kuffour knows League 2 well following spells with Gillingham, Bristol Rovers and a stint at AFC Bournemouth earlier in his career and he is well aware of how tough a division it is. 

He said: “I played at this level last season and earlier in my career. It’s a competitive league with a lot of good teams in there.  

“I’ve played for three other clubs at this level, I know what it’s about and I just want to get started - I can’t wait.”
