Latest on Ayew brothers 'quitting Ghana'

World News

Following recent reports that brothers Andre and Jordan Ayew had decided to quit the Ghana national team, a representative of the duo's family has now shed light on the matter.

This week, reports coming out of Ghana suggested the Ayew brothers had decided to retire from international football following their country's embarrassing display at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The Black Stars were eliminated from the tournament at the group stage, finishing bottom of their group after picking up just one point following losses to Morocco and minnows Comoros, and a draw with Gabon. 

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has since fired head coach Milovan Rajevac, along with his entire technical staff, following the side's abysmal performance at the showpiece. 

The eventful week was capped off by reports that skipper Andre Ayew and his younger brother Jordan had decided to part ways with the national team, but family spokesperson Fiifi Tackie has now dismissed this.

"Andre and Jordan Ayew are still very committed to the Black Stars team as they have always been," Tackie wrote on Twitter on Thursday. 

"They will keep donning the Black Stars jersey to represent Ghana and give the team their very best on and off the pitch, as always. We just got off the phone."

With the brothers now confirmed to be committed to their nation's cause, they should be in contention for selection ahead of Ghana's crucial two-legged 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying play-off against Nigeria in March. 

The GFA is yet to officially appoint a new manager for the team, but reports in Ghana suggest that the role will be filled long before the all-important fixtures with the Super Eagles.
