Ghanaians blame Ayew brothers for Ghana's early exit from AFCON 2021
Ghana suffer group stage exit at AFCON 2021
Former Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has said benching Jordan Ayew or Andre Ayew would have had a good impact on the Black Stars' final group game against Comoros at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Member of Parliament of the Odododiodio emphasized that among the Ayew brothers, Jordan is a better substitute, thus he would have benched the Crystal Palace man in Ghana's defeat against Comoros.
Speaking on Joy News, Vanderpuye named five Black Stars players who impressed him despite the team failing to progress from the group stage.
"Players who impressed me are Alexander Djiku, Daniel Kofi Kyereh, Joseph Paintsil, Kamaldeen Sulemana, Fatawu Issahaku, Samuel Owusu who is a prospect. If I was the coach I would have benched one of the Ayews, I would've played Owusu. Jordan Ayew performs better when he comes from the bench."
