Andre Ayew misses training ahead of crucial Gabon clash

Black Stars skipper Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew missed his second training session ahead of Friday’s game against Gabon.

I don’t remember the last time we lost a game in Ghana – Andre Ayew

The Al Saad midfielder sat out the intense session due to a head injury he suffered in the opening game against Morocco.

In the post-match interview against Morocco, Dede Ayew disclosed that he hasn’t been feeling well since they touched down in Cameroon for the 2021 African Cup of Nations.

Speaking to the press after the Black Stars lost by a single goal in Yaounde, Dede said he made the decision to play and his colleagues also supported him.


“I have not been feeling well for the past two days, I wanted to play, my colleagues wanted me on the pitch and I did everything because I have been waiting for this for three years now, we lost and I was unlucky to add a cut on my eye to it,” Ayew disclosed.

He's however expected to be fit for the must win game against the Panthers of Gabon
