REVEALED: Andre Ayew To Be Named Black Stars Captain For AFCON

Coach Kwasi Appiah is reportedly planning to name Andre Ayew as his new captain ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after Asamoah Gyan's retirement from national team duties.

The 28-year-old is set to take over from Asamoah Gyan, who has led the team since 2013 when he succeeded John Mensah.

Sources say Kwasi Appiah will make the decision public during the squad announcement later this week.

The decision by the coach has made the Kayserispor forward to retire from the Black Stars with Asamoah Gyan camp reporting that the former Sunderland forward is furious with the technical handlers decision.

Both Gyan and Andre have consistently brushed aside claims of a power struggle in the team, but this latest development is likely to cause massive divisions in camp.
