Ex-Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko talisman Emmanuel Osei Kuffour has boldly declared himself as the best Ghana Premier League player of all-time.

Kuffour is one of the most decorated player to have featured in the Ghana top-flight having won the CAF Champions League, CAF Super Cup and a CAF Confederation Cup title with the Phobians.

He bagged six league titles including four at Hearts of Oak and two at Asante Kotoko.

Kuffour  won two FA Cups, 1 Ghana Super Cup and a Guinness Gala Championship accolade.

As a Ghana international he earned 31 caps and was a member of the Black Stars squad for the 1998, 2000 and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

He was renowned for his versatility which saw him play as a defender, midfielder and a striker.

In a 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Nigeria, Kuffour played as a goalkeeper after the No.1 gloves man was sent off.

When asked whether he thought he was the best of all-time, Kuffour told Kumasi-based Ashh FM: ''It is obvious everyone knows this and I am proud of that achievement.

''I enjoyed playing for Kotoko. Their song was inspirational and it motivated me to deliver.''

He also lined up for Ebusua Dwarfs (twice), AshantiGold and Power FC before hanging up his boots.

Kuffuor played for Russian side FC Anzhi Makhachkala, Tractor Sazi and Libyan side Al- Ittihad Tripoli.
