Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah says he will not reject the chance to be a pastor after one of the country's leading preachers prophesied that the midfielder will take the pulpit in future.
The ex-Juventus says he will not hesitate to respond to the call to be a clergyman after Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, leader of the Royal House Chapel International, prophesied a few weeks ago.
Appiah, currently a free agent and a committed member of the Royal House Chapel, a few weeks ago, received the prophecy in a church service conducted by the Apostle-General.
He joined the church in their 5-km walk on May Day and in a post-event interview in his response to the call of God Appiah said he is keen.
â€œWhy not, if God says yes, who am I to say no, I have received the prophecy in good faith," the generous and highly-popular ex-Ghana captain said.
"The man of God says I will be a minister of the gospel in future, so I am waiting, when the time comes, I will respond.
â€œThere is nothing like doing the work of God. As you can see the expression on the faces of the people gathered here bears testimony to the fact that serving God is with while,â€ Appiah added.
He described the walks as a huge success, though it could not be compared to the vigorous training sessions he undertakes as a player.
The former Juventus, Parma and Fenerbahce playmaker, who is a Manchester United fan, advised all to make regular exercise a habit to take care of their health challenges.
