    This is the reason why it’s harder for African footballer to reach the top in European football.
    Why? Because they leave their club in the middle of the season for the CAN. When they come back, they find their places occupied and they have to fight themselves back into the line-up. Don’t get me wrong. Drogba made it. Eto’o made it. Yaya made it.
    But the time the CANs are held is negatively impacting African players. This is especially true for goalkeepers. Goalkeepers are usually not substituted. So when the goalkeeper leaves his club in the middle of the season, he’ll just slip down the pecking order. This is why there ae no great African goalkeepers in Europe.
    In conclusion, please CAF change the system!

    Marseille should be planning on replacing only one Ayew brother during the AFCON 2013 not both. There is only room for one Ayew brother on the Black Stars. The really good talented one!

    ONLY DEDE SHOULD BE CALLED TO GBSTAR. JORDAN IN MY OPINION NEEDS TO BE LOANED OUT SO HE CAN IMPROVE AND MATURE. RIGHT NOW HE IS PLAYING IN DEDE’S SHADOW AND DATS NOT GOOD FOR HIS PROGRESS.
