Ghana legend Dan Owusu rejects Andre Ayew’s ‘senior players may have advantage’ in squad selection for World Cup comments

Published on: 28 September 2022

Ghana legend Dan Owusu has reacted to Andre Ayew’s claim that senior players may have an advantage in the selection of Black Stars squad for the 2022 World Cup.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Ayew claimed that some senior players would make the Black Stars squad for the upcoming World Cup.

“The newcomers are talented, but we already have a strong team that qualified for the World Cup, so every position is competitive,” Ayew told Aljazeera.

But his comment has created a heated argument within the footballing fraternity and on Social media.

In an interview with Koforidua-based Bryt FM, Dan Owusu, who won the Ghana Premier League goal king gong for three consecutive times says it is unfortunate for the Al Sadd star to make such comment.

“It’s unfortunate, Ayew shouldn’t have said that because if you are an old player and under-performing there is no way you should be in the team. It all bounds down to performance and not seniority” he said.
