Release: Asamoah Gyan celebrates Sammy Kuffour
I share with you the pride as you celebrate your accomplishment. I congratulate you as you mark the end of your playing career in a testimonial match on the 23rd December 2011 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium Kumasi.
Coming from our historic appearance at the World Cup in Germany 2006 which you played a major role to help us propel to where we are now as a team, we will always remember what you have done for Ghana football.
I am doing everything in my capacity with my Club to come and be part of this historic event, unfortunately I am playing a game today (Thursday) making my flight arrangement very difficult. With these facts, I may not be able to come to Ghana for the match and if that happens please remember I am with you in spirit.
I wish to use this medium to congratulate Andre Dede Ayew on his nomination in the final shortlisted players and further throw my weight behind him in his quest for The Continental Best Male Footballer of the Year 2011 tonight in Accra.
