Despite Africa producing numerous great players, Abedi Pele stands as my inspiration, according to Black Stars deputy skipper Andre Ayew.

The West Ham United attacker emphasized on the important role the three-time African best footballer has played in his career during a football clinic last Saturday.

“So many players have inspired me, but my Dad (Abedi Pele) inspired me a lot, I watched lots of his games and clips. And Ghana had lots of good players which includes Stephen Appiah, Micheal Essien and Sulley Muntari, and these are players grow up looking at them playing. But on the international scene there are a lot of African players

who have made it put the flag of Africa high,” Ayew said.

He added: “But I like to always look at what Ghanaians have done and I think when I started to play, players which include Stephen Appiah, Micheal Essien and Sulley Muntari, John Mensah and Hans Adu Sarpei does were the people I looked up and there are no in the Black Stars but are behind us and supporting us,” Ayew said.
