As you may have seen, Ghana took on Zambia over the weekend in the World Cup qualifier but unfortunately we lost 1-0. Although the pitches out there were so different and very difficult to play on, we were united as a team and played our hearts out- it’s such a shame we didn’t get a result. On behalf of the Black Stars I would like to thank all our fans for their continued support…you are being heard!
This week I have been trying to have some time off to recuperate after a hectic few weeks of away games and spend some time in Ghana with my wife, my family and my friends, but on Tuesday I had a really important commitment! I was honored to be invited to the Osu Castle, to meet the Vice President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama and show him a replica of the UEFA Champions League trophy from Inter Milan in 2010 as well as present him with an autographed jersey from AC Milan.
I was so proud to be in the presence of Mr Mahama and humbled when he congratulated me for my achievements in football. The occasion also really made me think about what a great experience winning the Champions League is and I really am confident that I can again be part of a winning team and receive a second UEFA Champions League trophy, with the Rosonneris who have won the title seven times!!
