In today’s development, Captain Dede Ayew has jotted a few words for his mates ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations;
“Without players there is no captain, you become a captain because of players and because of the squad; football is not like boxing or tennis, you have to do your job and the job is to be done by the whole group…
“Captain has nothing to do with seeing yourself as a different player, you are a football player, you are here to fight and go towards the goal if you are not able to go towards that goal, then you haven’t done anything…
“My job is to unite everyone, to go to this tournament with a lot of determination with a fighting spirit and love; we are going to have 23 captains, we don’t win a trophy with one captain so we need everyone to take responsibility on the pitch and off the pitch,” he stated in an interview.” Captain Dede Ayew’s said in his heartwarming message to the Black Stars.
