Ghana defender John Pantsil returns to Fulham to play in a Charity All Stars game on May 23, can exclusively reveal.

The 33-year-old is among high profile ex-stars who are expected to play in the charity match at Craven Cottage.

Pantsil, who currently plays for South African Maritzburg United, joined Fulham in 2008 from West Ham and made 90 appearances for the club

He helped the side to secure their highest finish of seventh in the Premier League in his debut season.

The Ghanaian international also featured 10 times for the Cottagers in the UEFA Europa League enroute to the final the following year.

It will be an emotional return for the man who thrilled the crowd during his spell at the club.

Adding steel to the Celebrity All Stars team will be two of Pantsil’s international colleagues – midfielder Laryea Kingston and former Juventus star Stephen Appiah.

A buccaneering defender who could operate at left or right-back, Pantsil made 88 appearances for Ghana during his career, and won a place in the hearts of the Fulham faithful with his passion and exuberant laps of honour round the pitch following a successful result.

John will join a host of former Fulham stars on the day, including Maik Taylor, Rufus Brevett, Barry Hayles and captain Sean Davis. The Fulham All Stars team will be lining up against a Celebrity All Stars XI managed by Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean.
