Black Stars midfielder Andre Ayew is confident that his side will avoid reliving their 2014 World Cup heartbreak when Ghana take on Uganda on Saturday in an African Cup qualifier.
Ghana suffered their worst outing at the 2014 World Cup after finishing fourth in their group with just a single point.
This infuriated section of Kumasi fans to vent their anger on the team by casting insults and using negative and abusive words on the players during their first practice at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
But Ayew, who re-joined his team-mates in Kumasi on Wednesday, says though Ghanaian soccer fans have every right to expressed their feeling of being upset, the team is poised to bring back happiness he has seen on the faces of Ghanaians before the World Cup again.
Andre Ayew told All Sports: “I think if the fans were not happy, it is important to know is why they were not happy.”
“I don’t think the fans can just wake up one morning and be angry. If they are angry, there is a reason. Black Stars are for the fans and the fans are for the Black Stars. I had information earlier that Asamoah (Gyan) had to intervene and I spoke to him too, but I am confident we’ll make Ghana proud again.”
“We love Kumasi and Ghana fans and I believe whatever happens, it’s just for a period of time. I believe things will change.”
Andre is an integral member of the Black Stars squad and will be expected to play a leading role for the team in the post World Cup game against Uganda and Togo.
