Former Black Stars captain, Stephen Leroy Appiah says the team under his stewardship didn’t get much negative publicity in the media because they were able to properly manage the issues that came up.

Issues of indiscipline by Black Stars players have constantly been reported in the media during major tournaments with issues of winning bonuses and player indiscipline always the dominant subjects.

But according to the first Ghanaian captain to qualify the team to the FIFA World Cup in Germany 2006, every national team has its own issues because it is a human institution.

In an interview with GTV Sports Plus, he said: "See, during my time with the Black Stars, we had big players in the team."We had our own issues but it was managed properly and it did not affect us in any way. I think that is what is missing now.”

"There was absolute love and bond among the players and that is why some of us will be remembered forever," he added.
