Andre Ayew congratulates Aubameyang, vows to work harder

Andre Ayew is not crying over spilt milk, the Ghana deputy captain has taken to Twitter to express his commiserations with Ghanaians following his inability to win the African footballer of the year award for 2015.

Ayew finished third in the voting of Africa’s national team coaches behind winner, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and runner-up, Yaya Toure at Thursday’s lavish awards ceremony in the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

Despite his high hopes of becoming the first Ghanaian to win African football’s highest individual accolade since his father, the son of Abedi Pele refuses to be overcome by failure and is looking forward into the future with high hopes.

“God is great,” he tweeted on Saturday as he expressed empathy with his countrymen who he knew were all backing him for the big gong.

“3rd place for the 2nd time in my career. I know Ghanaians and my fans were waiting for the 1st place and that was my goal just like the AFCON,” Ayew expressed.

“But I will work hard to make my country and fans proud. Congratulations to my brother Aubameyang for winning and my big brother Yaya Toure for all what he has done for our continent,” the Ghanaian star added.

Meanwhile, Ayew has been left out of the Swansea City side that are away to English 4th tier side, Oxford United in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
