Ghana international, Andre Ayew has revealed why he joined Qatari side, Al Sad.

The 31-year-old completed a move to the Asian country on a three-year deal as a free agent.

According to the former Swansea and Marseille talisman, he is joining Al Sadd to continue his father's legacy and to win trophies.

It will be recalled that Andre's father (Abedi Ayew Pele) at the beginning of his career as a professional footballer played for Al Sadd for one year between 1982-1983 after joining them from Real Tamale United in Ghana.

Making a cameo in a video to announce Andre's unveiling, Abedi recounts his stint with Al Sadd 39 years ago before his son takes up the narrative.

"I am Andre, and I am now at Al Sadd to continue my father's legacy and win more trophies," the Black Stars captain said.

Andre has reportedly signed a contract that entitles him to $222,000 in wages every month.

Andre parted ways with Swansea City after failing to book Premier League qualification after losing to Brentford in the final playoff.

Al Sadd are the champions of the Qatari top-flight.
