Exclusive: The spokesperson of the Ayew family says the duo are prepared to return to the Black Stars setup following a conversation with coach Appiah
Ghana internationals Jordan and Andre Ayew have confirmed their readiness to return to the Black Stars setup after a lengthy discussion with coach Kwesi Appiah, the family’s spokesperson Fiifi Tackie has said.
The Ayews were once more left out of the national team’s squad for the upcoming double header against Sierra Leone in the Africa Cup of Nations despite an improved performance at their respective clubs.
That decision sparked debates, considering the fact that Gyan made a return on the back of a poor form coupled with lack of game time at club level.
As revealed by Goal on Monday, the Ayews had a telephone conversation with Appiah and have now confirmed their readiness to don the national colours.
“I was the person who revealed that Kwesi Appiah has never spoken to the Ayews since last year but he called Jordan Ayew before reaching Andre because the latter was unreachable initially,” Tackle told Goal.
“They spoke lengthily about several issues. Just as I’ve been saying recently, they are ready to play for the national team anytime the coach hands them the opportunity like other Ghanaian footballers.
“The duo will continue to do their best for their clubs and wait for what the future holds,” he added.
The Ayew brothers last featured for Ghana in September 2017.
