Ayew brothers not problematic – Ibrahim Tanko
Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko has denied reports that Andre and Jordan Ayew have been left out of the Black Stars squad a little over a year ago due to bad disciplinary records.
According to reports in the local media, the duo have been problematic for coach Kwesi Appiah, as they flout camping rules, but Tanko insists they will return to the team very soon.
“Andre Ayew and his brother Jordan Ayew are not problematic to the cause of the Black Stars as it has been speculated in the media and other places,” Tanko told Nhyira FM.
“They always train well and cope with everything they are supposed to do so I’m unaware of the narratives outside there. They’re not troublesome.
“However, I am not promising them of a call-up in our subsequent games but they might get a chance to join the Black Stars team in the future. We want the best for the country so any player anywhere who can help us achieve the target is welcomed on board,” he added.
The Black Stars are currently in Kumasi preparing for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group F qualifier against Sierra Leone on Thursday.
