Jordan Ayew escapes Ghana FA rap over wild allegation
By Ameenu Shardow
The Ghana FA will not take disciplinary action against Jordan Ayew over unsavory comments made about the association.
The 20-year-old has implied his exclusion from the provisional Black Stars squad for the 2013 Nations Cup was engineered by the association’s top hierarchy.
The Olympique Marseille striker also went further to imply that such manipulations led to the premature international retirement of AC Milan star Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Many however believe Ayew’s comments was bourne out of frustration and anger after missing out on the provisional 26-man squad for the tournament to be hosted early next year in South Africa.
Others also are calling for a further probe into the matter to give the youngster the opportunity to substantiate his allegations.
But the Ghana FA says it is not interested in opening any hearing of the sort into the wild allegations made.
“We have experienced such attacks in the past where players dropped for tournaments have made such allegations,” Communications Director of the GFA Ibrahim Sannie-Daara told Radio Gold.
“Baba Amando, Francis Dickoh and Laryea Kingston readily come to mind.
“I will only urge cool heads prevail and that in times of anger and frustration such comments come up.”
Sannie-Daara debunk the serious allegations made by the player who only began starting games for the Black Stars under coach Akwasi Appiah.
“I can tell you that these allegations are absolutely false,” he adds.
“The coach said it clearly that he selected the players himself and therefore is responsible for the results thereof.
“We as an FA will continue to support the coach and any decision he makes concerning player selections.”
Jordan’s comment is already receiving a lot of bashing on social networking sites.
He is being deemed now as a disgruntled player who has gone rogue over his axing from the national team for the Nations Cup.
