Ghana football is progressing – Andre Ayew

The former Nottingham Forest forward in declaring his undiluted support for the Ghana Premier League has refuted assertions that the league is in decline

Ghana skipper Andre Ayew has thrown his weight behind the leadership of the Ghana Football Association insisting football is progressing in the West African country.

The former Nottingham Forest forward in declaring his undiluted support for the Ghana Premier League has refuted assertions that the league is in decline.

Ayew is convinced Ghana football is on the rise urging his fellow citizens to continue their love and support for the game.

“I have always, not from today, since I was a kid, been a fan of our Premier League. It is a league I personally admire because when I was a kid, I dreamt of playing in the Premier League,” Ayew shared passionately, endorsing the Ghana Premier League.

Ayew further highlighted the positive developments in Ghanaian football, particularly the improved accessibility for fans. “I think Ghana football is progressing, we are able to watch the games on phones live. I’m able to watch RTU, that’s another important club for me. I’m personally able to follow what’s happening in our football and that is great,” he explained.
Being an active player himself, Ayew stressed the significance of this progress in infrastructure and accessibility for local players.
“It helps the local players to also profile themselves. So for me, I think the league has progressed and the infrastructure around it is progressing, and I hope that it continues like that,” Ayew added optimistically.
Ayew’s endorsement of the Ghana Premier League is seen as a tremendous boost for domestic competition, which has faced challenges in attracting significant attention in recent years. His words are expected to inspire renewed interest and support for the local football scene.
Ayew’s viewpoint carries weight and impact because he has the most appearances for the Black Stars.
After leaving Nottingham Forest, he is currently a free agent, and his support demonstrates his faith in Ghanaian football’s future and the value of developing local players.
