Eric Akoto is set to start training with Floriana next Wednesday after the Greens are in search for a top defender following the injury of Tyrone Farrugia.

The thirty one year old caught the eye of many when he played for for Togo in Germany at the 2006 World Cup. He has 56 caps and has scored one World Cup goal.

Akoto has played league football in Austria and Germany but is looking for a new club after being released by Australian club North Queensland Fury.

Described as an athletic defender the former Blackpool trialist is seeking a move to Malta for a short spell.

    @santos , true talk. Floriana is a club with bad administration. They talk big when they need a player with all promises , but in just 2 years 8 players has sent their Ases to the federation with unpaid salaries , and multreatment. …… I will advise Erik to be careful with them. ENERYONE KNOWS THEM IN MALTA.

    santos, we would like to know what we are talking about… but if you’re just making up bullshit I suggest you stop. the only trap that exists is the one keeping your very tiny brain in its place.
