Marseille refuse to release Ayews for Ghana friendly
Marseille have turned down the Ghana Football Association’s request to use Andre and Jordan Ayew for Wednesday’s friendly against China.
The match is not a FIFA approved date for African countries so the Ghana FA cannot insist on their release.
The French Ligue 1 side outfit fear the brothers will suffer from jet lag before their next league match.
The duo were in action in midweek in the Europa League against Eskiehirspor.
Andre grabbed a double in that match in which they won 3-0 at the Stade Velodrome in the third qualifying round return leg tie.
Marseille begin their Ligue 1 campaign against Reims on Sunday.
