Ghana World Cup star Andre Ayew says he is far from super stardom after being applauded for his exhilarating performances at the World Cup.
The midfielder was adjudged man-of-the match in his last game against USA in the second round but missed the quarter-final match due to suspension.
Ayew, son of Africa football legend Abedi Pele, is being sought-after by European clubs and looks set to quit Olympique Marseille-who own his transfer rights.
The 20-year-old said he has been humbled by the accolades that have greeted his performance at the World Cup.
” As a footballer you try to be a star-I’m not a star and I’m fighting to become someday in the game-to be like Essien, Muntari and these kind of players who play for big clubs and have won big trophies,” Ayew said.
“I had an opportunity to earn some good money when I was young at Marseille by playing in the Champions League but I made some mistakes growing up but not on the pitch because I always felt I was doing my best.”
