Laryea Kingston has questioned why the Ayew brothers who claimed were not in good health condition to play for the Black Stars, didn’t join the team to Brazzaville.

Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew who featured in Ghana’s 1-1 draw against Congo in Kumai in the 2018 FIAF World Cup qualifiers, opted out of the reverse fixture in Brazzaville, over health issues.

The Black Stars in their absence managed to whip Congo 1-5 in Brazzaville on Tuesday and Laryea Kingston who was Andre Ayew’s teammate for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations has expressed concerns over the Ayew brothers inability to travel with the team.

“You (Dede) have to be committed to every game. Even though the game was not important, you have to be committed,” Laryeah said on the Football Legends Night Show.

“You (Dede) are the deputy skipper to Asamoah Gyan so you have to be there even if you can’t play.

“For me he (Dede) abandoned a sinking ship when he was needed most,” Laryeah blasted.

The intelligent former Hearts of Midlothian winger also felt the two brothers connived to jilt the team since they felt Ghana’s World Cup qualification was a hopeless venture after the Congo draw in Kumasi.

“I felt they abandoned a sinking ship which is wrong. I know there are some games that Dede is not hundred per cent fit but hides the injury to play. I (Laryeah) have even done it before.

“Gyan wasn’t fit and couldn’t play but he travelled with the team so I expected the deputy skipper to also travel with the team even if he wasn’t well.

“… for me I felt Jordan and Dede felt there is no hope for the team after the 1-1 stalemate with Congo in Kumasi and didn’t want to travel to Congo for the return leg. But as players, they have to be committed to every game.

Andre and his brother Jordan missed the Black Stars trip to Congo but their absence could only be a sharp inducement for the team as they walloped the Congolese by 5-1 at their own backyard.

Kingston believed that after the first leg ended 1-1 in Kumasi Andre and Jordan lost confidence in the team ahead of the reverse fixture.

“Andre and Jordan felt that there was no hope so why should i go. But they have to be committed to every game, even though the game is not important. Andre is the deputy captain and he has to be with the team though they can’t play so for me i think they abandoned the team.”
