Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan has commended Andre Ayew for taking the initiative to foot the airfares of some of the playing body who are not in good financial standing.

The Sports Ministry wanted a majority of local players to feature against Rwanda because the ministry is facing financial challenges and moreover the Black Stars have already booked a place in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

However, the foreign-based players volunteered to foot the airfares and Andre Ayew assisted the other players who weren’t in a good financial standing to buy tickets for the tie.

Asamoah Gyan, who was busily sorting out his club issues has hailed his teammate for coming to the aid of his colleagues.

“I must commend Andre Ayew if he managed to foot the airfares of some of the Black Stars players.  I wasn’t informed the players were taking care of their airfares, so when I go to camp and I am debriefed, I will come out publicly to thank Andre for his kind gesture,” he told the press after arriving at the Kotoka International Airport on Thursday.

The 30-year-old striker has sealed a one-year loan move to Al Ahli in the United Arab Emirates.
