An Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association, Randy Abbey says the FA is ready to work with any player who rescinds his decision to play for the Black Stars with particular reference to Andre and Jordan Ayew.
According to credible information gathered by footy-ghana.com, the Ayew brothers today met with the President of Ghana, H.E. John Dramani Mahama at the Flagstaff house to discuss possible returns to the senior national team.
The Ayews are yet to officially confirm their comeback following the meeting, but sources at the Flagstaff house reveal that the meeting was successful.
Abbey told footy-ghana.com that the GFA would open their arms wide to welcome back the Ayew brothers, noting that the return of players such as the Ayews and Ac Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng would only strengthen the Black Stars.
“Well I think that the posture of the FA and the coach of the team is that we will prefer that these players end their absence and come back so we have a bigger pool to choose from and if they do so it will be welcome news. We all will be excited about it, because the bigger the pool the better it is for the coach to select a better team. The FA cannot give anybody preferential treatment to anybody because all players are the same and receive the same bonuses, but if they come back we will open our arms to them.”
Meanwhile, the former GFA spokesperson says he is confident that the Black Stars team will qualify for the 2014 World Cup, adding the Lesotho game on June 16 2013 is not a done deal and the team will have to work hard for the three points.
“I’m more than confident in the team and I’m on my way to Lesotho to give them my support. They have to work hard to get the three points and I know they will do that. The technical team and the Black stars are working so hard, and I’m sure and confident they will finish off Lesotho and Zambia in September and wait for the draw. Brazil 2014 is a must.”
