Jordan Ayew attacks Ghana FA for his Nations Cup axing
Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has implied that the Ghana Football Association is responsible for his dropping from the Black Stars squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 20-year-old says there is more to his dropping from the Black Stars squad for next month’s competition in South Africa other than footballing reason.
The attacker was left out of the Black Stars 26-man squad announced by Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah last week.
The youngster has been impressive for Marseille having netted eight goals in all competitions for the club this season.
The son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele is adamant to reveal the real reasons for his dropping but suspects there are ulterior GFA motives for his axing from the squad.
“It’s not so bad not to be taken with Ghana squad (for the Africa Cup of Nations). This is Africa you know,” Ayew told French newspaper L’Equipe.
“I do not want to go into details, but if Kevin-Prince Boateng left the team, it is not for nothing.
“Many things happen with the Federation of Ghana. I cannot tell you … There are things that are not normal.”
The decision to axe the promising youngster has been condemned by a section of the Ghanaian media, with critics arguing that his performance surpasses some of the strikers.
However, Jordan has not been impressive in recent matches for the Black Stars.
His performances in Ghana’s match against Zambia in Ndola as well as the match with Malawi were widely condemned by the local media as well as fans of the Black Stars.
