Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew has long voiced his utmost respect for the Ghana Premier League.
Ayew, a free agent at the moment, endorsed the league in a video posted to the Ghana FA’s social media accounts and asked Ghanaians to keep watching the top division.
“I have always, not from today, since I was a kid, I have always 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”
“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”
“Being outside and for me to be able to follow the league I want to, if I don’t have a training and a game and there is a game I want to watch, maybe I want to watch RTU, Kotoko, Hearts of Oak or any team, I’m able to watch and that is a great achievement and it helps the local players to also profile themselves”
“So for me, I think the league has progressed and the infrastructural around it is progressing and hope that it continues like that and that we can even take more steps to help our football.
“Let’s get involve watching the Premier League, bring back the love to this lovely football nation and we are all behind supporting, former players, players playing now like myself and younger once coming, lets support each other, let the love come together and let make it a great league in our country,” he added.
Hello Ghana! Our skipper Andre Ayew has a beautiful message for us. He’s a product of local football. He says we should cherish our own!

The Ghana Premier League has struggled to draw major attention lately, therefore Ayew’s support is considered as a boost for the domestic league.
The Black Stars player with the most appearances is currently a free agent after leaving Nottingham Forest when his six-month contracts expired.
