“My best player is Abedi Pele though he couldn’t make it to the World Cup’ but I will still choose him and when you come to those who made it to the ‘World Cup’, I will choose Stephen Appiah as my best player because he then was the captain at that time and his inspiration with the motivation.”
“He was passionate and motivated the players, that is why I chose him because there was no division in our time, we were all one as a team, we go and we did all our best.”
“That motivated us to qualify to our maiden World Cup.” He added.
