Ex Black Stars defender Samuel Osei Kufour has stated becoming the captain of the Black Stars was never a priority and never fought with the current boss over captaincy prior to the 2002 Africa Cup Of Nations in Mali as reported.
In an exclusive interview with GTV Sports Plus, the Bayern Munich legend said:
“As a player, I was only interested in the success of the team.
“I was never interested in the Black Stars captaincy. I know there is a report which says I fought with CK Akonnor over the captaincy. It was never true.
“I was told about the decision but I told the team officials to consult CK Akonnor before because I don’t want a situation where there will be a division in the team.
“I always interested in the welfare of the team and not the captaincy,” he concluded.
Kuffour was part of Ghana’s first World Cup squad in Germany and started in the team’s first game against Italy.
