Ex-Ghana great Mohammed Polo is urging the FA to redirect their focus on the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan and forget about the Ayews’ saga.
Ghana football has been embroiled in massive controversy in the past weeks after Marseille duo Andre and Jordan Ayew opted to quit the Black Stars following disagreements with the FA.

With a crucial World Cup qualifier against the Nile Crocodil looming in a matter of days, the former Hearts of Oak talisman wants the issue to rest and energies directed at the game at the Baba Yara stadium.
“It’s very unfortunate that the effort that the GFA have made has not yielded results yet but as a father you just don’t give up but what I want them to do is to concentrate on what is ahead of us,” he told Joy FM
“If they have to concentrate on this issue and nothing comes out it will be a disaster because time is not on our side but for me to say they should forget about them is not the best.”
The Black Stars trail leaders Zambia by three points and must beat their opponent convincingly to put their campaign back on track.
