Sammy Kuffour career
Sammy Kuffour burst onto the scene as an Under-17 player for Ghana and move to Europe after signing for Torino F.C. in 1991 aged just 15, after playing for King Faisal.
He joined FC Bayern Munich in 1993 from the Italian club and after a season-long loan spell with FC Nürnberg in the second division, he made his breakthrough with the Bavarians.
Kuffour spent 11 seasons with Bayern, rising from the youth teams to be a prominent first-squad member who lifted the UEFA Champions League with the club.
He was an integral part of the squad that won the 2000–2001 Champions League, also scoring the winning goal in the 2001 Intercontinental Cup, after which he was subsequently named man of that match.
With such a profile, he has not become one of Ghana's most iconic footballers but also one of the richest and the view from his house which is estimated to be worth $2m is a testament.
