President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi has described former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah as the best skipper of the senior national team he has worked with.
Mr. Nyantakyi, since his election into office in 2005, has seen the Black Stars captain’s armband handed to Stephen Appiah, John Mensah and now Asamoah Gyan. According to the GFA boss, Appiah is the best among the trio.
“I dare say in my opinion, you were the best captain. My measurement of success is not only based on winning of trophies, but provision of good leadership, leading the team and ensuring stability in it, building good rapport among players and between players and management and also ensuring that there is harmony and mutual respect. And these were the hallmarks of your leadership when you were the captain of the Black Stars.”
Appiah will be holding his testimonial game on Saturday, June 27 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
