No rift with “best friend” Essien over Akosua Puni – Appiah

Former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah has dismissed reports that he has a frosty relationship with former teammate and close friend Michael Essien over the latter’s wife.

Akosua Puni, wife of Essien was alleged to have dated the former Juventus midfielder until his injuries set in before Puni hopped over to the former Chelsea Star.

Puni was also mentioned to have dated hiplife artiste Okomfo Kwadee, an allegation the musician has flatly denied.

Essien’s romance with Puni is said to have created a rift with his former national team captain but speaking on Starr Chat Wednesday, Appiah strongly denied that he and Essien have a sour relationship.

“Never [have a problem with Essien]…how can I have a problem with Essien and he will still be my best friend,” Appiah told host Bola Ray.

Appiah who started his football career with local club Accra Hearts of Oak in 1995 went on to play for Udinese, Brescia, Parma, Juventus, Bologna, Cesena, Fenerbahce and Vojvodina before he officially retired in January 2015 after injuries cut short his career. – Credit:
