Kwasi Wusu, whose legendary football career spanned over 30 years for club and country, has passed on in his home in Sunyani after a short illness, Ghana Sports Online can confirm.
Wusu, who was Rambo-built, in his heydays spent nine seasons playing for Sunyani-based Bofoakwa Tano in the Ghanaian top-flight.
Most footballers and fans from across his era describe him as the greatest Ghanaian striker ever and statistically just behind Ghana’s all time leading striker Asamoah Gyan.
Wusu scored 9 goals in a 2-legged AFCON qualifier against cross-border neighbours Burkina Faso in 1973.
Journalists in Sunyani and sympathisers are already paying tribute to the late striker.
Ghanasportsonline.com editor El Akyereko paid a visit to the home of the two-time Olympian in early February as part of data collection for a book dedicated to Reverend Osei Kofi.
Wusu made several appearances for Ghana from youth level to senior national team level playing along several top stars of his day.
He is regarded as one of Ghana’s all-time best strikers.
