The Ghana Jersey is very heavy to wear- Dede Ayew

Black Stars captain has underlined the gravity of being part of Ghana’s National Men’s Football Team by tagging the Ghanaian jersey as a “heavy one”.

He said this in an interview with Canal+ as Ghana prepares to continue its 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign in June with a tough game against Mali lined up.

The Black Stars head into the game on the back of a terrible 2023 AFCON campaign that had the four-time winners crash out at the group stage.

Ghana failed to win a game in three outings by losing to Cape Verde and drawing 2-2 with Egypt and Mozambique respectively.

As the nation continues its quest to end a 42-year title drought, Ayew believes that Ghana will bounce back from this difficult spell.

“The players start by getting used to it, by understanding what it means to wear this jersey, which means a lot to millions of people. The jersey is very heavy to wear and you need to have broad shoulders. I know we will bounce back. We work. We are going through a bad time. But we will get through this, I am sure.”

Dede Ayew is gunning to play in his 10th AFCON next year and his wonderful strike for Le Havre has been nominated for the French Ligue 1’s Goal of the Season Award.
