Adopted into a Ghanaian football-loving family, young Andre’s eyes gleamed with the desire to pull on the coveted Black Stars jersey in the future.

“Growing up I used to travel with the Black Stars when they were going to play a match with my dad, I only had one thing in mind as a kid was to play for the Ghana Black Stars and I have lived the dream for 17 years”

“And every day I come to camp and have the chance to wear this jersey is the best moment in my football career because that is when I feel the most joy. wearing this jersey for me is everything that counts”

“My biggest achievement or legacy from my football career before I hang my boots will be to lift the AFCON title”

In the Ayew household, football was not merely a sport but a legacy, a tradition passed down from generation to generation.”
