Lee Addy shows gratitude for Abedi Pele's guidance

Published on: 24 October 2020

Ghanaian defender, Lee Addy, revealed that he received guidance from the legendary Abedi Pele during his formative years as a footballer.

Addy featured for the Black Stars in multiple tournaments including the 2010 World Cup but his footballing journey started under the tutelage of the former Black Stars talisman at Narnia FC. He talked about the basics he was taught.

"Abedi taught me how to play. Abedi Pele had something called character and I think Dede Ayew has it now. [He showed us] the fighting spirit and what you are going to meet outside the country," he told Joy FM.

"The European club who is coming to buy you is expecting that you play ten times better than the players there so you have to be fit and concentrated. You have to be very strong because they will frustrate you. Abedi taught us all these things."

"Abedi had everything. Everybody testified to his greatness. I watched his videos. I watched him playing in the national team for a while too. At the time I started watching him, he had everything."

Addy is currently searching for a club after his potential move to Ethiopia fell through.
