King Faisal President Alhaji Karim Gruzah will be embarking on a personal initiative to have the Ayew brothers rescind their decision to retire from the Black Stars.
The Olympique Marseille duo, Andre and Jordan, slapped in letters on Tuesday to prematurely call time on their international career.
The shocking move by the sons of Ghana legend Abedi Pele has split opinions amongst fans of the four-time African champions.
While others believe their decision ought to be respected and be left alone, others insist their return is crucial for the success of the Black Stars in upcoming assignments.
Alhaji Gruzah who is a long-standing friend of the Ayew family, aided by ex Ghana international Samuel Osei-Kuffour and Mighty Jets owner Abu Sodonko (all friends of the family) will however hold discussions with the celebrity family to trash out the concerns raised by the two players.
“If God permits, myself, Samuel Osei-Kuffour and Abu of Mighty Jets will be going to discuss the issues towards reconciliation,” Gruzah told Kumasi-based Fox FM.
“We want a quick resolution to this issue in the interest of Ghana.”
Both players were not part of the Ghana squad that finished a disappointing fourth at the just ended Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
