Jordan Ayew wants his brother Andrew next to him in Black Stars – Otto Addo

Ghana head coach Otto Addo has said that it is Jordan Ayew’s desire to be next to his senior brother Andre Ayew in the national team.

The Ayew brothers have played together in the Black Stars since 2012, with both surpassing 100 appearances for Ghana.

Jordan still shone in the absence of his elder brother, though, coming on as a substitute to score the winner against Mali in Bamako before netting a sensational hat-trick against CAR in Kumasi as Ghana won both games.

Addressing journalists after Monday’s game against CAR, Otto Addo answered a question on whether Andre’s absence had any effects on Jordan and said although the Crystal Palace forward wishes to have his brother by his side in the national team, that was a matter for the coaches to decide.

“Let me talk for Jordan. It’s his brother. Sure, he wants him to be next to him, but what will happen: it’s my decision, it’s our coaching staff’s decision,” Addo said.

“As a brother, he would like him to be next to him. But, I have a responsibility for the national team, for Ghana, and I have to decide what is best for the team, and who knows? Maybe he’s there, maybe not, but I don’t know.

Ayew has now scored 28 goals for Ghana, making him the country’s sixth all-time top scorer behind Abdul Razak, Tony Yeboah, Abedi Ayew Pele, Kwasi Owusu, Edward Acquah and Asamoah Gyan.
