Anthony Baffoe said: “This was a decision I took three months ago due to personal reasons. The journey which started in November 2017 sadly ends, giving way to the start of a fresh journey. I count myself lucky to have served CAF and being at the forefront of the administration of the game on the continent. Praise be to Almighty Allah. I am grateful to the CAF Executive Committee led by Patrice Motsepe for the opportunity, not forgetting former CAF President Ahmad Ahmad for seeing the potential in me at first hand.”

AFCON 2021: No COVID-19 Cases In Ghana Camp – Rajevac Assures Ghanaians

2022 WCQ: Milovan Rajevac Holds First Black Stars Training At Cape Coast Stadium [Photos]
Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has confirmed that his side has no COVID-19 cases ahead of their game against Gabon on Friday.

The Black Stars are aiming for their first win at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) following a 1-0 loss to Morocco on Monday.

Rajevac’s side didn’t come to the party against the Atlas Lions and were largely outplayed in that encounter.

Speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of the Gabon clash, the Serbian said Ghana has not recorded any COVID-19 cases thus far.

“No Covid-19 situation in camp. All players are fit,” Rajevac said, as quoted by Angel FM journalist, Saddick Adams.

The Black Stars boss further gave an update on captain Andre Ayew, who suffered a head injury against Morocco.

The 31-year-old was excused from training on Wednesday, but Rajevac insists he is now okay and available for selection.

Meanwhile, Rajevac also expressed his view on the controversial refereeing that marred the game between Mali and Tunisia.

Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe came under the spotlight after ending the Group F clash before 90 minutes.

The match official made a series of contentious decisions as Mali recorded a 1-0 win over the North African side on Wednesday afternoon.

Rajevac said he was hopeful that such controversial refereeing will not be repeated in the upcoming AFCON matches.

“I hope the next round of matches will be less controversial. In our game vs Morocco at the end of first half per our judgement, we had a penalty but VAR rejected. I’m not a fan of criticising referees,” the Ghana coach added.

Andre Ayew Misses Training Ahead Of Match Against Gabon

Black Stars skipper Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew missed his second training session ahead of Friday’s game against Gabon.

The Al Saad midfielder sat out the intense session due to a head injury he suffered in the opening game against Morocco.

In the post-match interview against Morocco, Dede Ayew disclosed that he hasn’t been feeling well since they touched down in Cameroon for the 2021 African Cup of Nations.

“I have not been feeling well for the past two days, I wanted to play, my colleagues wanted me on the pitch and I did everything because I have been waiting for this for three years now, we lost and I was unlucky to add a cut on my eye to it,” Ayew disclosed.

He’s however expected to be fit for the must win game against the Panthers of Gabon.

Captain Of The Black Stars, Dede Ayew, Optimistic About Next Round

Captain Of The Black Stars, Dede Ayew, Optimistic About Next Round
Black Stars captain, Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew has allayed the fears of Ghanaians on the chances of the senior national team in the ongoing AFCON 2021.

According to the Al Sadd skipper, though Ghana lost to Morocco in the opening game, there is no cause for alarm in regards to progression of the team into the round of 16.

Speaking at the post match interview in Yaounde, the skipper said starting tournaments on a difficult note has been a normal thing for Ghana over the last few years.

“We are very disappointed to have conceded in the last minute, we faced a solid team, one of the favourites, we went head to head with them but it wasn’t meant to be.”

“I think we can get through and we will get through cos it is our duty and we will make sure we qualify to the next stage. We lost the first game in 2010, 2015 but we pulled through. We were not expecting this start but we will make it”, Dede said.

“I have not been feeling well for the past two days, I wanted to play, my colleagues wanted me on the pitch and I did everything cos I have been waiting for this for 3 years now, unlucky to add to that a cut”

The Black Stars were largely passive and were punished for their profligacy in the second half when Sofiane Boufal took advantage of a defensive lapse to score what proved to be the winner.

Milovan Rajevac named a very strong line-up but also picked five debutants for the game against the Atlas Lions.

Joojo Wollacot, Alexander Djiku, Joseph Paintsil, Baba Iddrisu and Kamaldeen Sulemana all started their first AFCON game, with Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey bringing experience to the team.
