Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was at the Accra sports stadium on Sunday to watch the derby match between Accra Hearts Of Oak and Great Olympics and was presented with a customized jersey by the phobia fans.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw but was very entertaining as Hearts regained their spot at the top of the table.
Hudson-Odoi watched his father’s former team in action in the Mantse derby as they fought hard to stretch their lead at the top but got disappointed with the draw at the end after missing so many glorious chances.
After the match the Chelsea winger was gifted a customised jersey by fans of Accra Hearts of Oak.

Meanwhile in other news, the President of the Republic of Ghana Akufo-Addo has echoed the voices of the masses by calling for Callum Hudson-Odoi to switch nationality and play for Ghana.
The Chelsea winger is currently in Ghana for the post-season holidays after winning the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea.
But the call for a switch in nationality has been mooted over the past couple of days that he has been here after being snubbed by England for the upcoming Euros.
In an interview with Joy Sport, the 20-year-old refused to close the door on a possible switch in nationality.
“I think obviously when you’re young, you have the opportunity to play for England throughout all the years, from under 15 to under 16 all the way up.”
“When they obviously gave me the opportunity to come I was in the country already. It’s something that I already had in my mind, set on already playing for England.”
“So it was the thing obviously choosing Ghana or England, and at the end of the day I said I always had the right people around me who always advise me – what’s right, what’s wrong. England came and I said ‘Yeah, let me go and play for my country.
“But I said Ghana is my home as well, so we’ll see, we’ll see. You’ll never know, so,” he said whilst giggling.
