Former football administrator and Kumasi Mayor, Kojo Bonsu, has called for the retirement of Black Stars Captain, Andre Rami Morgan Dede Ayew, to save him from the fleet of attacks following his penalty miss at the World Cup in Qatar.

The former Mayor tells Akoma Sports’ Sammy Acheampong in an interview Wednesday, December 7, 2022, that he believes Dede has served the nation well and it will be proper to give him a better send off.

“Dede Ayew has really done well for the country looking at his achievements for the country since he joined the national team.

“But honestly, he is weak [not in the best shape] now so the country should give him a good testimonial or farewell game to retire him and avoid accusing him for the penalty miss. Should we continue with this attack, it will affect the next generation,” he advised.

The aspiring flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress was confident the current crop of players in the national team are good enough if maintained and protected from the vilification that has the potency to dampen their spirit.

“We have good team, we should calm down and avoid the unnecessary insults we rain on them,” he said.
