Former Black Stars forward, Prince Tagoe, is optimistic that André Dede Ayew has the leadership qualities to lead Ghana's national football team to win the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Ayew was appointed captain of the Black Stars prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, taking over from Asamoah Gyan.
The former Hearts of Oak man believes Ayew could be the right man to lift the title with Ghana.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if André Ayew leads the Black Stars to win a Cup,” the former Ghana Premier League top scorer told Joy FM.
“He is a strong leader and very dedicated. He gives his all whenever he is on the pitch and you can see how he motivates the players as well.” he added.
Ghana is chasing a fifth Cup of Nations title having already won it in 1963, 1965, 1972, and 1982.
The Black Stars painfully lost in the finals of the 1992, 2010, and 2015 editions of the competition.
Meanwhile, former two-time world champion, Joseph 'King Kong' Agbeko, is not ready to retire until he wins another world title.
According to Agbeko, before he hangs his gloves he has to become a three-time world champion.
At age 40, Agbeko is leaving no stone unturned as he returns to the gym eyeing another world title.
