Rodney Appiah- son of former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah, says despite his dad being a great footballer, he will try to play better than him.
The youngster who started his career playing for Juventus Academy said he grew up watching his dad play and believes with his support, he will attain greater heights.
“With the support of my dad and everything, I already saw myself going to make it.
“I just grew up watching him and learning from him and see how the Ghanaians love him and everything so I also wanted to feel the same way so that Ghanaians will also love me as well,” he told 3sports in an interview.
Rodney signed for Ghana Premier League side Accra Great Olympics in the second transfer window and believes when given the opportunity to play he will put in his maximum best to protect the legacy left behind by his dad.
“Obviously I will try my best to play way better than him, play well on the field so that I don’t destroy our name or anything, he just keeps telling me to have fun on the pitch, I should just be myself but not like him and pray a lot,” he continued.
He added “I like it when there is pressure on me, I won’t panic or anything, I will just do what I can do,” Appiah added.
