Betway Ghana Brand Ambassador, Stephen Appiah has returned to Ghana after a week-long visit to English Premier League Club West Ham United.
Earlier this year Betway announced a partnership with the former skipper of the Ghana Black Stars. At the announcement, Betway Ghana hinted that the partnership deal was not solely for Betway’s benefit but to expose Stephen to a global network of football partners that will help him develop his own skills to become a world class coach.
The trip which was fully sponsored by Betway Ghana included sessions with the academy and coaching staff to help improve on his overall coaching knowledge.
Stephen was given a tour at the London Stadium and also had the opportunity to see the West Ham United play Manchester City live. He also met with the Manager of West Ham United, David Moyes as well as some players from the West Ham United team.
West Ham’s excitement at Appiah’s visit was clearly evident in the presentation of a custom west ham jersey emblazoned with his number 10 by club legend Steve Lomas on match day.
The former skipper’s visit to West Ham is ultimately envisioned to impact positively on the state of football management in Ghana which is in line with Betway’s aim of contributing to the development of sports in Ghana. It is anticipated that the current technical coordinator of the black stars will be able to contribute new learnings from the trip towards national team preparations.
