Ghana captain Andre Ayew, says disclosed that he looks up to his father Abedi Pele for inspiration as the Black Stars prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ghana are housed in Group H alongside Portugal Uruguay and South Korea.
The 32-year old former Swansea City star’s father Abedi Pele, achieved a lot in football. However, he sadly, could not make it to the World Cup.
And although Andre Ayew clocked the feat by making it to three World Cups, he still feels he lives in his father’s shadow.
“What was difficult was people always talking about my dad and what he had done, always wanting to see him in me,” forward Ayew said in an interview more than a decade ago.
“When I decided to try to make a life in football, I knew what would be waiting.
“I take a lot, if not every, inspiration from him.”
