Head Coach of the Black Stars, Charles Kwablan Akonnor has defended Andre Ayew’s move to Al-Sadd after leaving Swansea City.
Ayew joined the Qatari side last month after his contract with Swansea City expired. He was linked to clubs in England and Turkey, but he decided to take his footballing skills to the Middle East.
Addressing the media on the inclusion of the Black Stars captain in his provisional squad for Ghana’s next month FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Charles Akonnor said he “trusts the decision” of his captain.
“Andre Ayew, the Black Stars captain who just moved to the Arab world. I believe in his judgment, I believe his father knows what is right and I trust them. It is an important move he has made and there is no doubt about that.”
Upon joining the club, the Black Stars skipper scored on his debut for Al-Sadd in a friendly game in a 5-3 win over Spanish side, Figueres in Spain.
Ghana will take on the Walias of Ethiopia at the Cape Coast stadium on Friday, September 3, before playing South Africa on Monday, September 6, 2021, in Johannesburg.
