Ayew brothers reiterate commitment to Ghana despite Black Stars snub

The Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan, have reiterated their commitment towards the Black Stars cause, insisting they are ready to play for the nation when called upon at anytime.


Both brothers have been dropped from coach Kwesi Appiah's 26-man squad to face Uganda in next week's World Cup qualifier in Kampala.

The Andre and Jordan spoke to the media after their game in the EPL on Saturday

However, their exclusion has divided opinion among Ghanaians, with certain quarters supporting the decision, while others believe Appiah goofed by dropping them.

The duo, though, have been enjoying their club football and they came face-to-face against each other last Saturday in the Premiership game involving West Ham United and Swansea City.


The elder of the Ayews, Andre, ended up on the winning side as the Hammers edged Jordan's Swansea by a lone goal. 


Despite Appiah claiming that the exclusion of the pair was due to the knack to give a chance to new Black Stars players, reports in the local media suggests that the two brothers fell out with the national team coach after pulling out of Ghana's last World Cup game against Congo.


However, the Ayew brothers insist they don't want to be caught up in any conspiracy theories, saying they are always ready to return to the national team fold when called upon.

Speaking in the aftermath of Saturday's game, Andre said: "We enjoy playing in the best league. Not a lot of players play in this league. A lot dream to play in this league.


"We are here representing Ghana. We will try to represent our continent as best as we can. 


"You always get people who are happy and those who are angry but what we know is that God has blessed us and we will always represent our country."

The Black Stars will need to beat the Cranes and hope that the result in the other game involving Egypt and Congo also favours them, to have any hope of making it to Russia 2018.
