Ghana cannot win AFCON with Gyan and Ayew, says Kenya FA boss
The president of Football Kenya Federation (FKF), Nick Mwendwa says Ghana can’t win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations ‘weakling’ Asamoah Gyan and Andre Ayew.
The West African giants have not won the crown since they last did far back in 1982 amid several failed attempts to clinch a fifth crown.
But ahead of Africa’s most prestigious tournament in Egypt, Kwesi Appiah and his technical team have been charged to lift the ultimate.
But Nick Mwendwa insists the country cannot win any silverware with the two superstars.
“We are not scared of Black Stars; you used to be a very big team but not anymore”, he told Kumasi-based Angel FM
“The likes of Gyan, Ayew; to me I think the curtain is falling on their international careers slowly by slowly.
“So unless you have some fresh legs, we should be scared; if you are depending on them for AfCON I’m sorry for you.”
Ghana will host Kenya in the final Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The dead-rubber clash will be used to determine which country tops Group F with both nations qualified for the continental showpiece.
