Konadu, has come in for massive praise for his tactical disposition and his boss Kwesi Appiah has revealed he feels proud of his countryman.

“I feel very proud of what he has done with this team,” Appiah said

“He deserves commendation because people said many things about this team but continues to prove people wrong.”
