Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah has released a list of 26 players for Ghana’s penultimate World Cup 2018 qualifier against the Cranes of Uganda,conspicuously missing from the squad is the Ayew brothers.

Their omission has raised a lot of debate among the Ghanaian footballing fraternity with some arguing that is the right call with others disagreeing.

One person who is not surprised by their omission is paternal uncle of the duo Solar Ayew who mostly speaks for the family in the media in recent times.

Speaking in an interview on Kumasi based Metro Fm, uncle of the duo says the family saw it coming.

“We are not surprise that the Ayew brothers were not in the list. We saw it coming because we eat football, sleep football we know everything about itAnd we were expecting it”

“I(Sola Ayew) told Dede and Jordan some weeks ago that the Coach(Akwasi Appiah) will drop them from the team so we are not surprised at all”.

The distraught uncle says he won’t blame coach Kwesi Appiah for dropping the duo since he only did the wish of Ghanaians.He also added that the Black Stars trainer is a close friend to the family

“Akwasi Appiah decided not to bring them and others. We don’t blame him and but we(Ayew family) are ready to serve Ghana”

“It was the criticism after the Congo game that led to the Omission of the Ayew Brothers from the squad”

“Akwasi Appiah is a good brother to the Ayew family, a good friend I take advice from him and at the appropriate time he (Akwasi Appiah) will come out with the happenings in the team”

“Coach Akwasi Appiah has done what Ghanaians want and we can’t blame him for dropping the Ayew brothers”

“It pains me because the same Ayew brothers were once the best players in the team”

Uncle of the two players refuted the claims that their omission is due to some political undertones stressing that politics should be left for politicians and football for football people but acknowledged that If there is any politics in the Senior national team then it started way back in 1992.

“We(Ayew family) are not into Politics so we do not have to associate politics with football…the politics in the team started in Senegal 1992”

“Let’s leave Politics for the Politicians and football for the football people”

“We are not disturbed with all the issues involving the Ayew brothers”

“If there is confusion in camp as people are saying and is as a result of the Ayews not invited then the Confusion is between Dede and Jordan”
