Abedil Pele tips Jordan and Andre for greatness

Published on: 16 March 2012

Ghana legend Abedi Pele believes his two sons Andre and Jordan have the credentials to perform on football's biggest stage.

The duo have been key players for their club Olympique Marseille and for Ghana this season.

Andre, 22, scored the only goal in the Uefa Champions League round of 16 first leg tie against to help them progress in the competition.

The younger Jordan has come on in leaps and bounds this season and emerged as an integral part for the Les Phoceens.

"I'm proud of my sons and they have always brought joy to the family. It's really stressful watching them in such high-profile games or competitions, but ending with a win always comes with a lot of joy," the former Ghana captain told Goal.com

"I have been telling them to believe in themselves and never play to suit anybody," he added.

"They are great players and will go places, especially with Marseille. I love my sons because they have never disappointed me."

    If a dad won't commend his children,who will.Certainly there is no doubt the two players are rising stars but they must make sure complacency does not not set in their lives and they will go farther than their father is saying.Inshaa Allah.
