Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he is pleased to have shared the same dressing room with great compatriot Michael Essien, Stephen Appiah and Sulley Ali Muntari.
The former Hellas Verona midfielder shared the same dressing room with the trio during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where Ghana made history by qualifying to the quarter final of the competition.
Badu, was promoted to the senior team after helping the U20 to win the World Cup in Egypt in 2009.
Speaking to mondoudinese.it in Italy, the Udinese midfielder expressed excitement in sharing the same changing room with the trio.
“Yes, it’s a religion, like in Italy. In countries like Cameroon, Egypt or Ghana football is very important. I was lucky enough to play many games in the national team, also winning an Under-20 World Cup,’’ Badu said.
“Then I shared the dressing room with great players such as Appiah, Essien, and Muntari.” He added.
Agyemang Badu boasts of 78 appearances for Ghana, scoring 11 goals.
