I did not undergo medical at Persepolis - ex-Ghana captain Appiah

Posted On Wednesday, 21st November 2012

Stephen Appiah did not undergo medical at Persepolis

Former Ghana captain Stephen has rubbished reports he failed a medical at Iranian giants Persepolis FC.

Manager Jose Manuel refused to sign the former Juventus and Fenerbache midfielder after opting for younger players.

But local media reports went rife last week claiming the 31-year-old was refused a deal with the side on health grounds.

But Appiah has dismissed the reports insisting they are the figment of people’s imagination.

“I heard a lot of reports about health reasons and I don’t know where this is coming from. I did not even undergo a medical test,” Appiah told Accra-based Joy FM

“The President said it was a done deal. And I don’t want to sound like I am blaming the coach but some of the fans confirmed to me that the coach wanted to bring his own players thus failure of the completion of my move there.

“I have been training on my own twice a day with my personal trainer so I am fit. But as you know in football you can train 20 hours a day but it’s not the same thing when you go on the pitch.So it’s very important to get a team to play with.

“The Skipper of the team came to me in the locker room after our training session and was amazed at my body and how fit I looked. I told him it was a result of my constant training even though I haven’t touched a ball since July.”

The former Ghana international has not played active football since he refused the expiration of his four-month loan move at Serbian side Vojvodina FC ended.

He has since arrived back home in Ghana where he will be expected to continue the search for a new club abroad.
