Nii Lamptey

Ghana are playing the Czech Republic right now. This reminds me of the story of 16 year old Nii Lamptey who played for Ghana. He was a very big name for Anderlecht in Belgium and, I believe had stints at Aston Villa and Coventry in the UK.

He never reached his potential due to the media hype and all but disappeared from football. I heard a tale that, while he was at his peak, if he returned to play football in Ghana he would be made a prince or something.

It's quite a sad story.
