Andre Ayew, 34, the skipper of the Black Stars, has given Ghanaians immense hope ahead of the 2023 AFCON.

The veteran forward speaking at the pre-match conference ahead of Ghana’s first game against Cape Verde on Sunday night in Abidjan, Dede Ayew shared his thoughts on Ghana’s chances.

“Huge tournament for us as a team. The last tournament was disastrous. We have learned a lot from it. We have the ambition to lift this trophy as my 8th one. In this tournament, you can’t predict anything. Our squad is determined and our ambition is to win this tournament, “said Andre Ayew.

The son of the former African Footballer of the Year, Abedi Pele, has been married to an<span;> Ivorian for years now, with the couple having two adorable children. The wife confirmed yesterday her support for Ghana but if Ivory Coast wins, she will be happy.

Ghana’s skipper sent a sweet message to Ivory Coast, the home of his wife in the pre-match conference.

“Here’s like my second home. My wife is an Ivorian and my kids are here too. I thank Ivorians for the warm welcome.”

Andre Ayew will be making his 8th AFCON appearance as he will equal the records shared by Egyptian Ahmed Hassan and Cameroonian former centre-back Rigobert Song. Andre Ayew is just two games to equal Rigobert Song’s 34 appearances as the player who has played the most matches in the history of the AFCON.

“Let’s focus on Cape Verde’s game first and then we can talk about me breaking records, “Ayew said.

Andre Ayew made his debut for Black Stars in 2007 and has made 115 appearances. He is one of the most experienced players in the 2023 AFCON.

“I am here as the leader of this crop of players. There are a few records to be broken. I worked hard but most importantly it’s about the team and we need to win games and make it far in this competition”, Dede Ayew concluded.

Ghana will open their campaign on Sunday in Abidjan against Cape Verde at 8 pm.
