Captain of the Senior National Team Andrew Morgan Dede Ayew believes coach Milovan Rajevac was right to leave him on the bench in Ghana’s 0-1 Win against Zimbabwe.
He said the decision to leave him on the bench was due to his lack of fitness even before the first game at Cape Coast.
“It was not an easy time and game for me and the other players but we are in a period where I have to be there for the team and every point is important but there are sometimes you have to up a collective decision,” Ayew told the media after the game.
“I think the boss did the right thing by benching me in the game. We spoke about the injury I was nursing and I’m just so happy that we have the points.
“I hope that we will continue like this against Ethiopia and the other game and I believe victory will be ours. Ghana will surely qualify for the World Cup,” he added.
Ghana currently seat on 2nd place with 9 points just a point separating them and South Africa who occupies the top spot with 10 points. Next for the Black Stars is a must win all matches against Ethiopia and South Africa in November.
