Speaking to 3 Sports in an interview, Rodney Appiah has opened up on how his father Stephen Appiah’s successes for the Black Stars has influenced his career.
“I grew up playing football my whole life. I was born in Italy, I started my football career over there at Juventus academy. With the support of my dad and everything I really saw myself going to make it,” the forward said.
Rodney Appiah continued, “I just grew up watching him [Stephen Appiah] and learning from him and seeing how the Ghanaians loved him and everything. So I wanted to feel that same way so that Ghanaians will love me as well.”
