Ghana's No. 1

Andre Dede Ayew deserves to be captain of the  Black Stars -Sam Johnson 

Published on: 15 September 2020


Former Ghana International Sam Johnson says Swansea City star Andre Ayew is the best person to lead the Black Stars after Asamoah Gyan.

The 30-year old was named as captain of the Black Stars prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt by former coach James Kwasi Appiah.

Andre Ayew was retained as captain of the Black Stars in the new leadership structure released by the Ghana FA on Sunday.

Ayew will be supported by Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey and Maritzburg goalkeeper Richard Ofori.

Speaking on the new appointment made by Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor, he said, “Akonnor is the coach and he feels these are the people who can help him.

"He believes these are people who can help him and I think it’s a good choice. When you look at the team, I think Dede Ayew deserves to be captain in the absence of Asamoah Gyan.

“In my opinion its good having two deputies making it three leaders. So if anything they have to come together and make things work”, he added.
