Football fans hail legendary Black Stars player Kyenkyenhene

He would term his hailing; good name is better than riches. Rev. Kwadwo Addai Kyenkyenhene has been given all the accolades that tell he was a good tool for the country in the sector of sports, on the category of football.

Some Ghanaian football fans could not hide their excitement when they reminisced the outstanding performance of the former Black Star midfielder/defender and Kotoko team manager.

According to them, he was spectacular in the display of his God-given talent.

Kojo Addai Kyenkyenhene who is now a Reverend Minister with Harvesters Evangelistic Ministry, Kumasi, had admonished Ghanaian football players to be selfless on their duty line.

In a recent interview on Metro FM, a local radio station in Kumasi, Rev Kyenkyenhene revealed things were different in his era with regards to how football players conducted themselves.

According to him, the ultimate interest of the then players was to raise high the Ghana flag at the international level rather than making money.

"We were selfless in our era. We killed ourselves for the country. Our determination was to raise high the Ghanaian flag at the international level", he told Nana Yaw Prekoh.

He has called on them to focus more on the success of the game rather than money; on which football fans shared their opinions.
