Former Ghana defender Daniel Quaye claims Andre Ayew was given the captain armband to lead the U-20 team just to give him a big market value.
Ayew, who currently plays his club football for Qatari side Al Sadd, led the Black Satellite to win the 2009 FIFA World Cup in Egypt, becoming the only African country to clinch the historic trophy.
Speaking in during an interview, Dan Quaye, a former Hearts of Oak star indicated that the U-20 team was already built so Ayew was only appointed as captain to give him a big market value since he was playing for French Ligue 1 side Olympic Marseille.
“Andre Ayew is a good player but I can tell you the U-20 team groomed by Sellas Tetteh was a complete team even before he was invited”
“Ayew was made the captain just to give him a big market because he was playing for Marseille at the time and at the tournament he didn’t disappoint” he said.
