Andre Ayew has been advised by his uncle Sola Ayew not to be keen on the Black Stars captaincy.
There are reports that the Fenerbahce star is obsessed with the armband and that is partly to be blamed for his absence from the team.
Some of his critics say Andre feels it is his birthright to lead the senior national team just like his dad Abedi Pele did years ago.
This is said to have created tension between himself and substantive skipper Asamoah Gyan but both camps have swept it under the carpet.
''Andre Ayew is not eager for the Black Stars captaincy. It would come by itself. We have been advising him on that,'' Sola Ayew told Ghana Crusader Online Radio.
