Bright Christopher Addae (also spelled Addai; born 19 December 1992) is a Ghanaian international footballer, who plays professionally for the Italian club Ascoli as a defender.[1]

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Born in Wa, Addae began his career with All Stars.[2] In November 2009, it was announced that he would be moving to Italian club Parma in the summer of 2010, after signing a four-year contract.[3] In January 2011, he was loaned to Spanish club Terrassa until the end of the 2010–11 season,[4] as Parma ran out of non-EU registration quota for signing players from abroad. In August 2011 his contract was finally registered in Lega Serie A. Addae moved on loan to Crotone in July 2012.[5][6]

He signed on loan for Slovenian club Gorica on 1 July 2013.[7][8] On the same day Gorica also signed Daniele Bazzoffia, Uroš Celcer, Massimo Coda, Alex Cordaz, Sebestyén Ihrig-Farkas, Alen Jogan, Gianluca Lapadula, Floriano Vanzo and Fabio Lebran (Crotone/Parma) in temporary deal from Parma.

On 31 January 2014 he was signed by Gubbio along with Alessandro Gozzi.[9]

On 17 July 2014 Addae was signed by Lega Pro club Ascoli in a definitive deal in a 2+1 year contract.[10] Addae and the club confirmed the optional third year on 30 August 2015.[11]

International career[edit]

Addae made three appearances at the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup,[12] and made his senior international debut for Ghana in 2010.[2]
