Andre Ayew hails Gyan.
Black Stars midfielder, Andrew Ayew has also joined the fray in showering praises on captain Asamoah Gyan for his heroic display in Ghana’s AFCON game against Algeria as the four-time African champions beat the Dessert Foxes 1-0 last Friday.
Andre Ayew praised Gyan for his striking quality in scoring that late goal for Ghana as the West African giant wins their fist 3 points in the ongoing AFCON tourney.
“It was a fantastic goal from a tight angle with a lot of quality which all happened because of the huge experience of Asamoah Gyan,” Andre Ayew told Allsports.
“I think when there is a player with that experience it’s massive. The same opportunity maybe a younger player can have it and play it away or maybe if Gyan had it ten yeas ago when he was 20 he may have missed it,” Ayew continued.
“But today he has the experience, he has the leadership quality to put in balls which are with a lot of pressure. Because it is the last ball, he knew it was the last ball, he knew he had to put it in and he did,” the Olympique Marseille midfielder acknowledged.
He concluded: “So we are happy, we are all going to rest, try to get back to full fitness. Whether he, me, John Boye, everybody, we will try and prepare and fight on Tuesday (against South Africa).”
