Charles Jesaja Hermann- the son of former Ghana captain and coach Charles Akonnor, has revealed that he really follows Ghanaian players in the Black Stars team, particularly the Ayew brothers.
“I can name a lot of Ghanaian footballers. I follow them. The Ayew brothers. Sulley Muntari. I watched them all in the World Cup in 2006. Asamoah Gyan. Michael Essien. Because of Essien, most Ghanaians want to play for Chelsea. They’re like legends. Yes and my dad of course. Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah.
The youngster has, however, stated his willingness to feature for the Black Stars in the future when given the chance.
Hermann is not alone on the German train in his family. Two of his brothers play in Germany and will someday be faced with the choice of where to represent. It’s a decision that will come with time, and the coming years may leave the brothers with making important decisions. Hermann doesn’t know what his brothers’ desires would be but he knows it’s a question of seasons.
“I have two brothers. One plays in Dortmund, one plays for Hannover 96.
“I think the future will tell (where they’ll represent). I don’t know what they want to do, but I think the smallest one of us will play for Ghana. Right now, the one who’s playing in Dortmund, not long time ago, in his debut for the U15 national team, he played for Germany. I’m proud of them. They’re doing their stuff. I’m helping them where I can help them”
The one who’s playing in Dortmund is Charles Jr. He’s 15. Then the other is 13.”
