Sammy Kuffour Excludes Himself From His All-Time Ghana XI As Appiah, Essien Make Cut

Ghana legend Samuel Osei Kuffour has named Stephen Appiah, Abedi Ayew 'Pele and Michael Essien in his best-ever XI.

Since the emergence of the novel coronavirus it has become a common norm for former players to reminisce about the past by naming their all-time best XI as the world waits for an antidote to deal with the global pandemic.

Kuffour, who enjoyed an illustrious career, has joined the bandwagon in naming his best-ever XI which surprisingly does not include himself.

The former Bayern Munich stalwart named ex-Wigan custodian Richard Kingson in between the sticks ahead of Sammy Adjei, Robert Mensah and Joe Carr.

In defence, he picked Emmanuel Armah, famously remembered for his exploits in the Senegal 1992 Africa Cup of Nations, Isaac Paha, Joe Odoi and Isaac Asare.

In midfield, he named an enviable combination of Chelsea icon Michael Essien, former Juventus and Fenerbache player Stephen Appiah, 1978 African Best player Abdul Razak and three time African best player Abedi Ayew ‘Pele’.

Kuffour chose Ghana’s all time leading goal scorer Asamoah Gyan and Anthony Yeboah as his leading marksmen.

Below is Kuffour's dream team:

Richard Kingson Joe Odoi Isaac Asare Emmanuel Armah (Senegal) Isaac Paha Michael Essien Stephen Appiah Abedi Pele Asamoah Gyan Tony Yeboah Abdul Razak
