Swansea City superstar André Ayew says he is delighted to have led the Black Stars once again.
Ayew was first named the substantive captain of the Black Stars prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The 30-year-old has been retained as the team’s skipper by new coach Charles Akonnor.
Ayew led the four-time Africa champions in the just ended double header friendly games against Mali and Qatar.
The Black Stars shambolically loss 3-0 to the Eagles Mali last Friday.
Ghana however recovered from the embarrassing defeat to record a 5-1 win against 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts Qatar in the second game.
Ayew took to Twitter to express his excitement after leading the team and used the opportunity to congratulate the new players.
“Always an honor to represent my country. Lots to learn from the both games.after a difficult 1st game, the reaction in the 2nd game was great. We will be ready for next month inshallah Congrats to the new boys for having their 1st cap..keep believing and never give up!”
