Former Great Olympics defender, Dan Qauye has lashed out at Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew, claiming his selfish conduct is not helping the national team.
Ghana, four-time African Champions, have failed to win any of their two games which have led them in a dicey situation to make it out of the group.
Ghana now have to beat Comoros massively in their last group C game before they can stand a chance to progress to the next stage of the tournament.
In the game against Gabon, the Al Sadd forward after scoring a brilliant goal in the first half had a counter-attack which could have resulted in a goal but failed to release the ball to Joseph Paintsil who was in a great position to double Ghana’s lead.
Andre after failing to release the ball has attracted a lot of criticisms and bashing from Ghanaians.
And according to Dan Qauye, who was a member of the Black Stars squad who played in the 2006 Fifa World Cup in Germany believes Andre Ayew is not helping the team with his selfish attitude.
He stressed that the 31-year-old must be told that the national team does not belong to his father.
“What was Andre Ayew thinking when he could have passed the ball to Joseph Paintsil to score the second goal?” he quizzed during an interview with Accra-based Happy FM.
“It was a clear goal-scoring opportunity for the Black Stars but Andre Ayew decided to keep the ball to himself. We must let Andre understand that the Black Stars is not for his father.
“This is a national team and there should be that oneness and unity among the players on the pitch but that is not what Andre Ayew is doing.
“He is always seeking the glory for himself and not the team. He always wants to grab the headlines which is bad for the team.
“He is selfish and his attitude is not helping the team. If I am playing with Andre Ayew, I would never enjoy playing with him because he is selfish.
“The national team is not for his father and he must understand that,” he added.
Andre Ayew’s 18th-minute strike was canceled out by Jim Allevinah on the 89th minute.
Ghana will need to beat Comoros in the final group game on Tuesday, January 18 to keep them in the competition.
The four-time African Champions, have always qualified from the group stage of the Afcon since 2008.
