Top 10 Ghana - Greatest Footballers of All Time

1. Abedi Pele
2. Michael Essien
3. Tony Yeboah
4. Samuel Osei Kuffour
5. Abdul Razak
6. Opoku Afriyie
7. Mohammed Polo
8. Opoku Nti
9. Sulley Muntari
10. CK Akunnor

The rankings are mostly based on each player's impact on the professional game (mostly in Europe) and their contributions to the game in Ghana. Until the era of Tony Yeboah and Abedi Pele most of our footballers played locally. It would have been great to see the likes of Abdul Razak and Opoku Nti play in top European leagues.


  1. Great list, I'd leave off Sammy Kuffour though :-). He's spent way too much time crying at the end of a big games (Champions league final against Man U and the terrible terrible pass he made in the world cup against Italy).


  2. Kodjo, Please tell us a bit more on the impact they actually made. It's a learning opportunity for a lot of us. Thanks!
