Attuquayefio is grateful to the entire Nation

STATEMENT BY JONES ATTUQUAYEFIO:

During my long career as a footballer, an administrator and a coach, I enjoyed a lot of support from the sporting fraternity.

But in this celebration of my career, the nation showed me love beyond measure.

I am very grateful to every Ghanaian and indeed every individual who made it to my testimonial match and those who supported it from a far.

I also wish to thank the Sponsors, Donors, Well-wishers, the Media and the Organizers, for creating such a special atmosphere on the night.

My appreciation also goes to all the supporter of the various clubs in Ghana; Hearts of Oak, Asante Kotoko, Liberty, Gt. Olympics etc and my colleague footballers, administrators and coaches for the wonderful ovation they gave me.

At the end, when I was on the pitch once again with the whole stadium chanting my name, it was indeed an emotionally charged night that moved me to tears.

To be honest, the feeling is hard to put into words, and that will be the bit I will always think about.

I wish to say a special thank you to my family; wife and children for being my pillar all these years.

Thank you to the entire Nation and God bless us all. ‘’Merci Beaucoup”
