The Swansea City star has been one of the most recognized Ghanaian players in Europe after a tremendous season with the English Premier League Club.
Ayew finished the season as the top scorer in the Club with 12 goals. The Black Stars deputy skipper seemed to draw much inspiration and motivation from his father who doubles as his agent.
“When you are lucky to have a dad like that, you try to learn from him and take his advice,” smiles Ayew during his first interview with Jack Magazine. “He was a great player – three times Africa’s best – and won the Champions League as well as all the other trophies that exist.” “I ask him for advice because he is somebody who knows football very well, but when I was younger he never pushed me to play,” admits Ayew. “
When we were younger, he didn’t really want us to play football. He wanted us to focus on school and education and to make sure we had respect for people when we were growing up. Those were his priorities.” Abedi Pele is regarded as one of the greatest Footballers on the African continent having won the African Footballer of the year on three occasions. He also won the UEFA Champions League title with Olympique Marseille.
