Jordan Ayew should be the next Black Stars captain – Solar Ayew

Solar Ayew, an uncle of the Ayew brothers, believes in a fair world, Jordan Ayew would’ve been a shoo-in for the Black Stars captaincy.

According to him, but for the shenanigans of some Ghanaians, Jordan should succeed his senior brother Andre as captain of the national team.

“The next in line for Black Stars captain should have been Jordan Ayew but the way we Ghanaians do our things that’s why Jordan is not the captain of the stars,” he told Ezra FM, as quoted by Sportsworld Ghana.

Solar also suggested that no one can force his nephew Andre Ayew to retire from the Black Stars.

According to him, the Nottingham Forest forward will only quit the national team at his own appropriate time.

“He [Andre Ayew] will consider retirement at the appropriate time,” Solar told Ezra FM.

He was responding to comments by Emmanuel Osei Kuffour, who has called for Ayew to be dropped from the national to make way for other younger players.

Osei Kuffour said Ayew has run his race with the national time and must now take a back seat for other players to shine.

The former Hearts of Oak man was, however, quick to add that Andre’s younger brother, Jordan Ayew, still has a lot to offer the Black Stars.

Reacting to this, Solar hit back at the retired footballer and said his nephew has achieved more than he [Osei Kuffour] ever did in his career.

“Who is General Osei Kuffour to talk about Dede Ayew, someone who has achieved than you. I thought it was Samuel Osei Kuffour (Bayern) who was saying that,” he said.

“The next in line for Blackstars captain should have been Jordan Ayew but the way we Ghanaians do our things thats why Jordan is not the captain of the stars.”

Andre Ayew is currently Ghana’s most-capped player, having made 113 appearances for the Black Stars and scored 24 goals.
