Black Stars winger, Christian Atsu, has pledged support for the team’s new captain Andre Dede Ayew.
He says players in the Black Stars team will put all external issues behind them and respect their new skipper as the leader to lead them to glory in the 2019 African Cup of Nation (AFCON) in Egypt next month.
“I don’t mind who the captain in the Black Stars team becomes. the Newcastle United winger told GNA Sports in an interview.
”Anyone appointed as the captain by the coach would receive the same support and respect he deserves. We as players support our captain and that is what we would do to win the Cup,” he added
The 27-year-old Newcastle winger mentioned all issues confronting the team have been resolved, adding that, they would be focused on their ultimate aim to win the cup.
“We all heard what went on regarding the captaincy but now the President has come in to resolve the problem. So, our focus is to go and win the cup for Ghana. All the players are happy that everything has died down.
“We are determined and don’t want any problem in camp again. You know sometimes, as a family we have problems but we are able to solve it as mature people. Sometimes even after breaking camp, problems come but we solve them ourselves, so I believe it is good that we are able to solve our problems when they come,” he added.
Atsu pointed out that, he was absolutely confident that the team would win Ghana’s fifth AFCON title this year in Egypt.
