Isaac Vorsah (born 21 June 1988) is a Ghanaian international footballer who plays as a centre-back for Austrian Bundesliga club Red Bull Salzburg in Austria.[3]

Club career

Vorsah's primary position is as a centre back, but he can also play as defensive midfielder. He began his career at Oscar FC in Kpando, Ghana and later moved to FC Maamobi. He transferred to Gamba All Blacks F.C. in 2005. In January 2007 the Kumasi based team Asante Kotoko bought Vorsah, before German side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim offered him a trial. After the trial he was loaned until 30 June 2008. He satisfied the management and on 1 April 2008 TSG 1899 Hoffenheim used their option to buy him and he signed a contract until 30 June 2011. He moved to Red Bull Salzburg in August 2012.

International career

He made his national team debut against Senegal on 21 August 2007 after he had formerly represented his homeland at U-23 level. He was part of Ghana's olympic team. He was named in Ghana's 23-man squad for the World Cup and played in the opener before an injury kept him out of the following matches, but he returned from injury in time to play Ghana's final match of the tournament, the quarter-final.
