My best season was with Brescia- Stephen Appiah

Published on: 23 May 2020

Former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah revealed that his best campaign came with Italian side Brescia in the 2002/03 season. 

The midfielder was loaned out to the club and produced exceptional performances during his time there. He earned a huge move to Juventus after that campaign. When asked about his best season in his glittering career, he quickly mentioned that of his brief time with Brescia.

"Brescia was the best season in my career because Brescia was a small team and when I joined them we placed sixth in the league. Nobody expected us to do so well. I had the chance to play with Baggio and Guardiola," he told Nathaniel Attoh on the Joy Sports Link on Saturday.

In that season, he scored 8 goals in 32 appearances for Brescia. He also had spells with Juventus, Fernerbache, Udinese and Parma before hanging up his boots.

He was part of the technical team of former Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah.
