Andre Ayew couldn’t control it’

10 February 2015, 12:15

Accra - 2015 Afcon top scorer Andre Ayew has revealed that the pain of a second loss after Sunday’s encounter against Cote d'Ivoire placed him into an inconsolable mood, SuperSport reports.

The passion-filled Black Stars vice captain was part of the young Ghana team that lost the finals of the competition to Egypt five years ago at the Angola competition and says a second fate saw his emotions completely fail him as Cote d'Ivoire won the Afcon 9-8 on penalties.

“The feeling of losing a second Afcon final got me very emotional and I couldn’t control it. It was really difficult for me to take.

“I thought we just deserved the trophy. We played well and put in a lot of effort,” Ayew told reporters upon the team’s arrival in Accra on Monday.

Ayew scored three and provided two assists for Ghana’s 10 goals at the 2015 Afcon.
