Ghana legend Abedi Pele was left in tears after learning that he would miss the final of the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations against Ivory Coast.

The Maestro had led the Black Stars to damage and eliminate arch rivals Nigeria at the semi final state of the tournament in Senegal 28 years ago.

A playback of the video shows Abedi Pele, father of Andre and Jordan Ayew, in tears knowing he was going to miss the final match of the 1992 AFCON against Ivory Coast.

He picked a 2nd yellow in Ghana's tough semi final 2-1 triumph over Nigeria.

In the stands was his wife Maha Ayew.
