Stephen Leroy Appia (born 24 December 1980) is aGhanaian football midfielder who is currently a Free Agent. He has played for several European clubs since 1997. Appiah was a member of the Ghana national team, which he has represented at the youth, Olympic, and senior levels. He captained Ghana at their World Cup debut in 2006 and was a member of their squad for the 2010 World Cup.
A strong all-round box-to-box midfielder able to defend as well as create and score goals, Stephen Appiah began his career at local club Hearts of Oak in 1995, at 15 years of age. In 1996 he had trials with Galatasaray S.K.'s youth squad but was not signed and he returned to Hearts of Oak.
In 1997 he moved abroad to join Italian Serie A side Udinese. He spent three seasons with the club and while there changed from striker to midfield. A transfer to Parma in 1999 was jeopardised by viral hepatitis, but Appiah overcame the illness to move there in the summer of 2000. After two seasons at Parma, Appiah went on loan to Brescia for the 2002–03 season. Appiah became a first-team regular for the Lombardians, and scored seven times in 31 games.
Appiah's success at Parma alerted defending Serie a champions Juventus to his talents. Juventus paid Parma €2m in the summer of 2003 to secure Appiah's services on loan, with an option to a permanent €6M transfer in 2004. In 2003, Appiah finished 8th for African Footballer of the Year.
He went on to enjoy a good first season for Juventus, playing in 30 Serie Agames and appearing in the Coppa Italia final. He also made his debut in theUEFA Champions League. In his second season at Juventus, Appiah played in 18 Serie A games.
On 2 February 2012, after passing medical exams, Stephen Appiah signed a six-month deal with Serbian side FK Vojvodina. Along withAlmami Moreira and Aleksandar Katai, he was the main winter-break signing of Vojvodina in order to challenge Belgrade clubs dominance and guarantee a European competition place. He made his Serbian SuperLiga debut as a starter in a 16 round match played on 4 March 2012 against Radni?ki Kragujevac.
Until the end of the 2011–12 Serbian SuperLiga season, he gathered 11 league appearances and has scored his only goal in the deciding last-round home victory against Red Star Belgrade (2–1), which put Vojvodina on a final third place in the league and guaranteed a spot in next season´s UEFA Europa League.
