Ghana's No. 1

Debate rages over Ghana’s greatest footballer of all-time; Unknown ex-Kotoko star James Agyei tops list

Published on: 08 March 2017

Debate about the greatest footballer in the history of Ghanaian football has been raging all day as Happy Sports “Greatest Footballer” series gets under way.

The reliable and credible Accra-based radio station has begun the search for the country's greatest all-time star as the West Africans mark 60-years of Independence this year.

The series started on Wednesday morning with Ghana legend Wilberforce Mfum tagging relatively unknown ex-Kotoko midfielder James Agyei as the country's greatest football star of all-time.

Mfum, 80, claimed Agyei's immense qualities makes him the greatest player to have graced the pitch, surpassing the likes of Baba Yara, C.K Gyamfi, Aggrey Fynn, Mohammed Polo, Abdul 'Golden Boy' Razak, Abedi Pele, tough-talking Osei Kofi and current star Asamoah Gyan.

He says the relatively unknown orthodox number 10 and left-footed player can legitimately lay claim to the accolade as the most complete Ghanaian footballer of all-time.

His skill, pace and strength combined with his football IQ makes him the ideal candidate for the accolade, Mfum insisted.

But could he be the greatest footballer as espoused by several former old players? - Or is this just the hype machine getting three steps ahead of itself again? has joined forces with Happy FM to figure out and lay to rest once and for all the greatest Ghanaian footballer ever.

Kindly join the debate and have your say below.
