John Mensah, a former Black Stars captain, has revealed that he once missed a flight to Italy because the security men did not want Stephen Appiah to go.
According to Obuasi born defender John Mensah, a misunderstanding between the security officers and Stephen Appiah caused him to sacrifice his flight.
John Mensah stated that “It was in 2004. Stephen, Sulley and I went to the airport to fly to Italy together. Sulley and I made it past all security but we realized Stephen was not with us,”
“We waited until the security came and told me that they were holding Stephen up. I got angry and had an argument with them. They later explained to me that Stephen was holding money and they did not want him to take it past them. I missed the flight in the end because Stephen did not go,” He further added.
