Appiah content and eager for success

Defender Sylvester Appiah says his number one priority is to ensure that he wins trophies with Dynamos and surpass the performance of George Owusu.

According to Appiah, Dynamos legend and compatriot George Owusu influenced his move to the Glamour boys.

Owusu was part of the Dynamos team which reached the mini league stage of the 1998 CAF Champions League.

“I am glad to be part of the country’s biggest team and it is a dream move for me.

“Growing up, we had players like Owusu who played for the club and that influenced me a lot.

“When Dynamos approached me I asked Owusu if it was right to join them and he encouraged me to take the offer.

“There is a lot more to come. Topping the list is to ensure that I win trophies with them. I have already won Uhuru Cup and I’m still hoping for more. I believe with Dynamos it’s possible because the club has players and management who are hungry for success.”

Locally the Ghanaian has played for Twalumba and ZPC Kariba but says it was always his ambition to join Dynamos and it happened last year.

“When I came here and joined Twalumba, our first pre-match friendly was against Shabanie Mine in a double header that had Dynamos playing in the afternoon. I could feel the atmosphere changed as they came out of the tunnel. The team has a huge following, which gives players pressure to deliver.

“It feels good to play before huge crowds. It boosts confidence and that is the challenge we need as players. I hope fans will be allowed into the stadium. I also want to feel what I felt when I was a spectator.

“I am looking forward to turn out for the side and prove what I am capable of doing.’’

Appiah showered praises on the club for being supportive.

“I am fortunate enough that my club is taking care of me, through our sponsors Remington Gold. I cannot complain. I wish is to do good for them in return. It will be great for me to surpass Owusu’s performance.”
