Quincy ‘regrets’ moving to Moscow

The former Arsenal youngster joined the Russian outfit in 2006

after quitting the Gunners in search of first-team football. The

23-year-old regrets leaving England and believes his current

Portsmouth spell is his last chance to shine in the country. The

Ghana international scored his first goal for Pompey in their 4-1

FA Cup success over Southampton on Saturday and believes his career

is now moving forward. He admits he is unsure whether he will be

able to remain at Fratton Park beyond the end of the season, but

does not want to return to Moscow. “I didn’t have any doubts about

coming to Portsmouth because this is my last chance to show what I

can do in English football,” explained Owusu-Abeyie. “Russia? I was

young at the time and it was hard for me to get into the team at

Arsenal with so many big names. “My agent at the time advised me to

go to Moscow and now I regret it. I had to go a step back and now

I’m trying to go forward again. “I’m only on loan so it’s possible

I could have to go back to Moscow at the end of the season, but it

is quite difficult for me over there – it’s about minus 20 at the

moment.”
