Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has taken full responsibility for Ghana’s early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations.
In a video post, Ayew apologized for the team’s failure to live up to expectations.
“These past days have been very difficult for every Ghanaian and every Ghanaian football fan, and myself,” Ayew began.
“I would like to apologize for the results of the AFCON that we just exited”, he added.
He conceded: “We should have done better. We should have gotten better results, too”.
“As the captain of the squad, I take full responsibility for what happened on the pitch for the playing body”.
“In Football, these are things that happen. These are things that make you stronger. What doesn’t kill makes you stronger individually and collectively.”
Chris Hughton, the coach who was sacked over the Stars’ poor performance also took full responsibility for Ghana’s poor performance.
