Ghanaians bemoan Ayew’s exclusion from latest Black Stars squad

Ghanaians bemoan Ayew’s exclusion from latest Black Stars squad

Ghanaians question Ayew's exclusion from latest Black Stars squad

Numerous Ghanaian fans are calling for the express inclusion of Andre Ayew into the latest Black Stars squad.

The 21-year-old was conspicuously missing from the 22-man squad released on Wednesday for the double-header against Sudan and Nigeria.

This call was vaguely manifested in the numerous contributions made on several sports programmes in Ghana via call and texts.

Discussions and debates over the latest squad on the streets of Accra have also been dominated by Ayew’s exclusion.

Their stand is further strengthened by the Marseille midfielder’s impressive display in last night’s Uefa Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund where he grabbed a brace.

The general consensus picked up by GHANAsoccernet.com is the call on Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic to publicly defend his call-ups to the national team as done elsewhere especially in Brazil.

Opinions were however divided over the exclusion of veteran goalkeeper Richard Kingson.

While many believe his exclusion is justified by his inactive club career and recent flops in post as Ghana’s no.1, others also believe his experience would be much needed to guide the current undisputed first choice Adam Kwarasey.

The first national team call-up to Asante Kotoko defender Amos Frimpong is also seen by many as a rush decision of the Serbian trainer.

One muted but gradually brewing concern was the three strikers called-up namely; Asamoah Gyan (Al Ain), Prince Tagoe (Bursaspor) and Dominic Adiyiah (Karsiyaka).

The main argument is that, the trio are not playing in the competitive mainstream league’s in Europe and therefore could be rendered rusty.

Do you think Andre Ayew should be handed an express call-up as many Ghanaian fans want?

Should Goran Stevanovic start a public defense of his call-ups?

Is Richard Kingson’s inclusion to the national team still relevant?

    Call up Dede and Dominic Oduro!

  2. Nii Dodoo says:

    @JK-Sasraku call Dominic what?, the athlete in MLS, infact u must be kidding me, that guy only know how to run. I dont even know why he plays soccer he should be contesting in 100m race for GH.mtcheewwww

    • JK-Sasraku says:

      Nii,

      If HE only runs, I don’t think he would be a regular starter and top scorer in his league as he is right now in the MLS.

      The guy sure is fast, and he can also score. With the kind of wasteful strikers we have at the moment, we sure can use Oduro’s qualities)speed and ability to score. Don’t you think?

      • philip Appiah says:

        My brother.. I am with you.. Donminic Oduro is on fire… if you can rely on players playing second division teams why cant you give this guy a shot..
        And who is resting Dede Ghana or Masaille….. Call the ASAP!!! we all saw what half fit Dede could do yesturday.. i am with you….

    • mukmin says:

      I think if Adiyah and Gyan can be called he should mls is more competitive than Turkish division 2 or the emirates league.

  3. JK-Sasraku says:

    So did the coach give any reasons for not calling up Dede?

  4. Nii Dodoo says:

    The guy has just been rested because he just recovered from groin injury. I know a lot of people are upset about the coach’s decision but hey lets try some lads too and see how we can have come competition in the team.

    • JK-Sasraku says:

      Yes, other lads (who are doing well in their leagues) should be tried to have competition in the team. Dominic Oduro for competition in the striker department. We need more new strikers than we do midfielders.

      I also think Olele should, at least, be on the bench.

      • Musah fifa says:

        why are you not talking about the inclusion of John Mensah who is now half fit, and try some new boys,i think Wakaso also need to be including in the team, don’t you think so? and inclusion of Dede in the team is needed, and why is this coach keep on inviting this two players, Dominic Adiyiah and Prince Tagoe? i think we have some good players who are beter than this two players, but they invite them in every Black stars match.

  5. Saxcee4u says:

    Guys, dede is performing now cos of the faith we showed in him. Why don’t he rest while we put faith in other players as well to bolster the team? Up Ghana!

  6. Leave Dede alone. He needs not to beoverworked. We have a squad that can defeat Sudan. Being defeated by Sudan will not be the coach’s fault but our own as the guys called have all the wherewithal to defeat this Sudanese team. What is all this panic for? Have some faith!!!

  7. texas says:

    @Nii Dodoo! How could you say Dominic Oduro only runs. Why should he not be given the chance to justify his inclusion like they give other players? Why should the coaches not monitor him like they monitor other players? Dominic Oduro has the speed, the strength, and skills that would enable him to play at the highest level in the top European leagues. The MLS is not a weak league as some you perceive it to be. Oduro is on fire at Chicago, scores day in day out, and he can do better than some of the strikers that are always called.

  8. Adahunzu says:

    Dominic Oduro is a winger not a striker. Patrick Nyarko ia actually a better player. He should be looked at as well. Is the Kotoko Frimpong a lefty? I do not know his game.

  9. texas says:

    Thank you JK-Sasraku . Don’t what Adahunzu is talking about. Oduro plays as a striker at Chicago. Some coaches prefer to use strikers as wingers while other use wingers as skrikers. So what is your point Adahunzu? as JK-Sasraku pointed out all we need is goals. Dede is now being used as a striker at Marseille is he natural striker? BIG NO!

  10. SUCKS says:

    @Adahunzu, what position is c.ronaldo play`s is he a nutural striker BIG NO!

  11. pee says:

    wht u got to be kidding wht the coach trying to mean dede out ,,,no ….., if this coach want to maintain is post then he needs to call dede ayew…who has just scored two goals on his return from injury……..coach do something before u die in the hands of ghanians.

  12. king says:

    this is the worst serbian coach i’ve come to know

  13. Experience Coach says:

    I dont even know why this coach calls TAGOE. He is a waste. Adiyiah plays well as a sub at the number 7 position but Tagoe? No no no no

  14. Menash says:

    All of you are disgrace to Ghana football. Rememember when Dede was about to be introduced into the BS squad. The same people commenting here did say he is too naive and not strong to be included. That is not too long ago. The then coach did not agree and went on and now it has a good result that you are fighting over. You all should zip your mouth and let this coach include some other people that you will not understand today but few years to come you will bee fighting their inclusion like today. You people were calling the head of Agyemand Badu not long ago that he is not playing actively and the coach did not listern to your stupid suggestions and went on with Agengo and now see the results. The coach knows best that is why he is call coach and you are all refered to as supporters. Shut up and let the coach do his job. After all he will receive insults from you when he does not get the results and you will call for his head. Shut ur mouths and pray for success.

  15. Mate says:

    The fact of the matter is that the coach called up 4 wingers mutari,adomah, quincy,inkoom i dont think he needs dede for this match.

  16. Diaz says:

    We should not forget that his plan is to destroy Ghana Football since Ghana scored Serbia in the Wold Cup tournament in SA.

  17. Atuule Baba. says:

    You all should let the coach do his job.He knows what he is doing, why, why Ghanaians why?

  18. morgan says:

    hey wat r u guys tokin abt @ pee how cn u say dnt to our Africa best coach….am behind da coach 100%.WEn s da gfa GOING TO FINILISE DA IVORIEN WHO S PLAYIN FOR KOTOKO PAPERS.WE WNT HIM IN DA NATIONAL TEAM DNT U THINK SO?

  19. MAWUDEKA says:

    DEDE’S ISUE IS NO NEWS WE SHOULD JUST GIVE THE GUY TIME TO RECOVER WITH A STERLING GEL AND STOP RUSHING HIM BACK QUICKLY LIKE WE,VE BEING DOING TO ESSIEN,NOW LOOK @ MICHAEL ESSIEN WHERE IS THE BISON, THE TRAIN E.T.C. NURSING INJURIES AFTER INJURIES ALL B,COS HE IS INVOLED IN A LOT OF GAMES FROM CLUB LEVEL TO THE NATIONAL SERVICE PLS LET’S SPARE OUR OWN STARS A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TO HAVE WHAT WE CALL SUFFIENCE REST. NOW SOMEONE WILL SAY THAT PUYOL THE BACA CPTN IS CUAGHT UP WITH AGE THAT’S IS WHY HE REPONDING TO QUICK INJURIES BUT IT’S NEVER SO
    IT IS THE WORK LOAD ON HIM. SO IF SUCH CALIBRE OF PLAYER CAN BE SIDELINE FOR SO LONG WHY DON’T WE UNDERSTAND THE COACHE’S DECISSION. GOD BLESS GHANA FOOTBALL AND LONG LIVE GHANA FOOTBALL AMEN

  20. dadaba gonshots says:

    At least can we hear from the coach exactly why he left Dede out? This guy is good. Please Coach, we PAY ur salary(guess what?) so we demand to know why you have taken some decisions, is that too harsh to ask or too dificult to answer or not part of your Job description? Currently apart from the strikers he has called on am not sure there is any other that we can call Strikers, well maybe Jordan- he is one of the Future though.
    as for OLELE, WTF?

  21. trexxy says:

    The coach knows the best for Ghana.We don,t have to always rely on certain players like Chelsea always do.we have to be giving the players chances so they can show wat they ve got.for instance if we were relying on only Essien as our midfielder wat would have happened to us.excluding a player does not mean he is bad.lets believe in this coach.

  22. Sabato says:

    Now, DEDE is using his right foot. He scored 2 goals with the right foot.PLAVI must play him alongside Gyan. His scoring rate is far better than Tagoe and Adiyiah conbined.

  23. rash says:

    dede must play the game please get him in the squad and its good calling the local players but not now vos

  24. Mojahadine says:

    The Black Stars does not belong to the Abedi Pele’s family. If the coach sees the need to live Ayew out then so be it.

    He is the coach and he knows what he is doing. If any one of you is qualified to be coaches you would have been given the opportunity to do so.

    Ghanaians should just shut up and leave the coach alone.
