Ghanaian international, Kwadwo Asamoah has revealed that it was former captain of the Black Stars who handed over the ‘dreaded’ number 10 jersey number to him during the 2008 AFCON tournament that was held in Ghana.
Speaking to award-winning journalist Gary Al Smith in an exclusive interview, the former Juventus star who now plays for Inter Milan after spending 6-years in Turin, said his favorite jersey number has always been number 20 but he couldn’t resist the temptation of wearing the iconic number when Appiah made the recommendation to the team managers ahead of the AFCON because he (Appiah) got injured prior to the tournament and was not to b part of the team.
The energetic and combative midfielder debunked the conspiracy theory that he later rejected the jersey because of some juju worked against him within by his own team mates in the Black Stars.
He said he never had any dream of lions chasing him to drop the jersey number for Dede Ayew as it was widely circulated. Watch all the details in the video below;
