Former Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has opened up on why he stopped wearing the number 10 jersey for the Ghana national team.
Kwadwo Asamoah after the retirement of Stephen Appiah from football in 2010 was handed Ghana’s jersey number 10. However, the former Juventus midfielder after a short while switched to Jersey number 20.
Per reports, Kwadwo Asamoah decided to change his jersey number due to spiritual attacks, a claim he has debunked.
“You know I have been hearing this story for a very long time. I don’t know the kind of person who brought out this story because I never had any conversation with anyone that I’ve been having dreams of someone chasing about the jersey.
“I don’t know where that story came out from. “I’m making it clear I never had any dreams like that. I just told them that I don’t want the jersey anymore.
“I want to change it back to my No. 20. So it wasn’t like someone was chasing me,” he said in an interview aired by Kumasi-based Pure FM.
Earlier this week, Kwadwo Asamoah who’s widely known for his versatility and wonderful left-foot announced his retirement from football at the age of 33
The former Juventus and Inter Milan midfielder enjoyed an illustrious career with the Ghana national team, making 74 appearances and scoring 4 goals.
