In light of the team’s dismal performance at the current AFCON competition in Ivory Coast, former captain Dede Ayew has unconditionally apologized on behalf of the group to Ghanaians.
Dede posted a tweet saying;
“On behalf of my teammates, I want to sincerely apologize to the people of Ghana.
We are sorry for not performing well. All we have ever wanted is to serve our country with our gifts. We will surely come back better.
Once again, I am truly sorry for my actions and the consequences they brought. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me and give me another chance to prove myself as a dedicated and responsible teammate.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration.”
Ghana lost their initial match against Cape Verde and ended up with just two points in Group B after drawing with Egypt and Mozambique.
The Black Stars thought that in order for Ghana to qualify, Zambia must lose to Morocco, and Cameroon must not beat The Gambia.
If that happens, Zambia will remain on 2 points and Cameroon will also get up to 2 points with a draw. But unfortunately Cameron beat Gambia 3-2 which makes the black stars out of the AFCON
