Former Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has named Stephen Appiah and Sulley Muntari as his best playing mates during his time with the Black Stars.
The ex-Chelsea maestro who had a 12-year spell with the four-time Africa champions, says he has fond memories playing alongside Appiah and Muntari.
“My best team mates in the national team during my time were Stephen Appiah and Sulley Muntari. Appiah was a unifier and through his effort saw the nation qualifying for our first ever world cup in 2006,” Essien said on an Accra based radio station.
Essien scored nine goals in 58 appearances for the Black Stars and played in two World Cups for the Black Stars.
