Baba Armando congratulates Ayew following captaincy appointment

Former Ghana international Baba Armando Adamu has congratulated Andre Ayew following his appointment as new Black Stars skipper.

Armando who is regarded as one of the naturally gifted players Ghana has ever produced believes Ayew has shown tremendous leadership qualities and will be able to take the team to greater heights.

“Dede (Andre Ayew) is like a younger brother to me. He is an excellent player and has shown since infancy that he has the charisma to lead.” Armando told footballmadeinghana.com

“He did it with the Under 20 in Egypt in 2009 and several times that Gyan was indisposed or on the bench he stepped in perfectly. This is not new to him, we will support him in all areas for him to succeed.”

Armando who scored for Ghana in our last Group game against Zimbabwe in the 2006 African Cup of Nations Tournament in Egypt is currently the sporting director of one of the lower division clubs in Dubai, UAE.
