Boasting of what’s arguably an incredible achievement in Ghana premier league history, former Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Osei Kuffuor has labelled himself the greatest player to ever feature in Ghana’s top division.
The Ex-Ghana international was referred to as ‘Mr Versatile’ due to his ability to play in a number of positions on the field.
Emmanuel Osei Kuffuor was instrumental in Hearts of Oak’s continental successes having won the CAF Champions League in 2001 and the Confederations cup in 2004.
‘The General’ as he’s nicknamed remain among a few Ghanaian players to have featured for both of Ghana’s biggest clubs Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
Despite playing for the likes of Ebusua Dwarfs, Anzhi Makhachkala, Ashantigold SC, Asante Kotoko SC, and Power FC, the 44-year-old is hugely remembered during his stay with the rainbow club.
In his response to the greatest of all-time tag, the ex-footballer told Kumasi-based Ashh FM it’s obvious looking at his achievements.
“It is obvious everyone knows this and I am proud of that achievement”.
Emmanuel Osei Kuffuor took an unfamiliar route to join Asante Kotoko via a rather short stint with AshantiGold SC from Hearts.
“I enjoyed playing for Kotoko. Their song was inspirational and it motivated me to deliver”, Osei Kuffuor revealed.
Apart from his continental glories with Hearts of Oak, he won 6 Ghana premier league titles, 2 FA Cups and 1 Ghana super cup.
His exploit did not end at club level, as he played a number of times for the national side; one-time manning the post for Ghana in a world cup qualifier after the goalkeeper was sent off.
