2021 AFCON: Andre Ayew is fit for Gabon game – Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac

Ghana coach, Milovan Rajevac has revealed that Andre Ayew is fit and available for Ghana’s crucial game against Gabon on Friday in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON].

The 31-year-old forward suffered a head injury in Black Stars 1-0 defeat to Morocco in the opening game on Monday.

Andre missed the team’s training on Wednesday and was tipped to miss the Gabon game through injury.

Milovan Rajevac, however, in his press conference on Thursday ahead of the game said the U-20 World Cup winner is ‘ready’ for the Gabon game but refused to confirm if the player will be in the starting lineup on Friday.

“Andre Dede Ayew is in stitches but doing okay,” the Serbian trainer said.

“He will definitely be ready, but I never talk about my selection before the match,” he added.

The Black Stars will be hoping to return to winning ways on Friday to keep their chances of playing in the next round alive.

The game has been scheduled to kick off at 19:00 GMT at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo.
