Stephen Appiah ended his football career with a historic testimonial match. Prior to this match, he stated in an interview that:
“I think Ghanaians have been true to me as in supporting me; they supported me till today that I said I am calling it done so I think I have to give that respect or I have to give back to them in terms of playing a testimonial game to tell them bye bye for their support, for the love that they’ve shown to me. So I think that it’s the right thing to do and definitely there will be a testimonial match.”
Stephen is married to a very beautiful lady, Hannah and has 4 children together; 3 handsome boys and a very cute girl.
