Captain of the senior national team, Black Stars, Andre Ayew anticipates a difficult game against their Sudanese opponents, especially play home in an empty stadium.
“Football is a game for the people so football without fans is a big thing because football is made for the fans and we are here to entertain,” the Ghana Captain said in an interview ahead of Thursday’s 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers with Sudan.
Ayew said: “Even though it’s a very important entertainment, it has objectives ahead but its also something that people love. So, the fact that we don’t have fans [is] difficult, especially at home, when I know what we saw here last year. It was something unbelievable, it was great, I loved playing at this stadium.
“I was looking ahead to playing here again. But we don’t have to get too sad about it. I think everything has its time. This covid-19, I pray to God that very soon it will be out so that everybody can start his/her normal life, not only football but in everything we do. We are ready!”
