Ghana Head coach, Otto Addo, has picked legendary Abedi Pele as his all-time Black Stars best player.
Addo adds that he looked up to the former Olympic Marseille superstar and Leeds United cult-hero Anthony Yeboah during his playing days.
Abedi had brilliant career, winning many individual and team trophies including the UEFA Champions League and the Africa Cup of Nations.
He also captained the Black Stars during his prime days as he thrilled fans with his eye-catching talent on the field.
Anthony Yeboah also had a wonderful career, enjoying some top-notch fame in England and Germany.
“Abedi Pele is my favorite Black Stars player of all time. When I was young I used to watch Ghana football and also watch Ghanaian footballers in Europe. He was one of the players I looked up to. Anthony Yeboah as well. These are my favorite players,” Addo said on Countdown Qatar.
During his days as a footballer, Addo played with many great Ghanaians but he was particularly impressed with Michael Essien and Asamoah Gyan.
“Essien or Asamoah Gyan. One of the two. Essien was maybe more international. Outside Ghana, he had a big name. He had big impact in European football and Asamoah Gyan had a big impact in the national team, especially with a lot of goals. I think what he did for Ghana is legendary.”
Otto Addo will coach the Black Stars at the 2022 World Cup.
