- Anthony Annan has opened up on his relationship with his family
- He said his marriage to the mother of his kids is on the verge of collapse
Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan has finally rubbished claims by his wife that he has neglected her and their kids.
According to the former Hearts of Oak player, he has never shied away from his responsibility because he has been taking care of his children.
"It is not true that l don't take care of my kids; everybody who knows my kids will bear me witness. I shop for them any time l am coming from Europe, l check on them frequently via video calls, they are dear to me so under no circumstance will l turn my back on them,” Annan said in response to the accusations.

"They are my kids so why will l deny them care? I remit them regularly so the allegations by their mother can never be true.”
Annan admitted that the marriage with the kids' mother is on the verge of collapse and that discussions by the two families regarding the divorce process have reached an advanced stage.
He pointed out that he has set her up in many businesses but to no avail; bought her a car but the kid's mom later sold it and has teamed up with her brother named Advisor to paint him black.
