Liberian shot-stopper Tommy Songo has applauded goalkeeper Richard Ofori on his appointment as deputy captain of Ghana's Black Stars.
The Maritzburg United captain was named assistant to Andre Ayew on Sunday by head coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor.
His new role has seen him earn praises from teammates and colleagues elsewhere, and the latest to join in congratulating him is LISCR goalkeeper Tommy Songo.
“Congratulations Richard Ofori on becoming the third captain of the Ghana national team.” Songo posted on his Instagram account with a picture of him and the Ghanaian goalkeeper.
The pair became friends when the U-20 team of Ghana faced Liberia in a qualifier in 2013.
Ofori has progressed to the senior national team of Ghana, making 19 appearances for the Black Stars.
