We say goodbye to a favourite son today as foundation player Kwabena Appiah departs the Club after a mutually agreed contract termination.Announced as one of our first three signings on day one, Appiah has grown from a wide-eyed teenager into a confident and experienced campaigner; highlighted by winning the our 2014 AFC Champions League Player of the Year award.
Playing in a number of the Club’s memorable matches, including starting in the Champions League Final, Appiah appeared 38 times for the Red & Black.
CEO John Tsatsimas said Appiah’s story holds a special place in the Wanderers history.
“Kwabena is one of the Club’s success stories; signed as a local Western Sydney boy, he is now an accomplished Hyundai A-League player and Asian Champion,” said Tsatsimas.
“It has been a pleasure to watch Kwabena grow as a player and as a person and we wish him nothing but the best for the rest of his career.
“Kwabena will never be forgotten by the fans, staff or teammates and he leaves us with great memories and a lot of smiles.”
Appiah has departed the Club with immediate effect.
