Ghana winger Andre Ayew has spoken for the first time since he quit the Black Stars, hinting that he could return to the national team in due course, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.
The France-based playmaker also disclosed that ‘negotiations’ are underway for him to return to the Black Stars just weeks after quitting the side.
The Marseille star player resigned from the national team in February claiming he had problems with the management of the team without disclosing details.
But the Ghana FA wrote to him urging him to reconsider his decision while his concerns are being addressed.
Speaking for the first time since he sparked nationwide controversy by resigning from the Black Stars, Andre Ayew says he is reconsidering his decision.
“For now, I sent my letter of temporary resignation,” Andre Ayew explained.
“This is a decision that I made.
“Now I will not deny that there are negotiations currently going on. We’ll see soon if I go back or not.”
Andre quit the national team after he was excluded from the Black Stars squad to play at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
He was part of coach Kwesi Appiah’s squad for the tournament but failed to report in time for the training camp in Abu Dhabi which resulted in his exclusion.
Ghana are fighting to qualify for the 2014 World Cup and are currently second in their qualifying group that includes Zambia, Lesotho and Sudan.
The Black Stars beat Sudan 4-0 in a World Cup qualifier last month without Ayew.
