Ghana’s coach Charles Kobina Akonnor has maintained Swansea City star Andre Dede Ayew as Black Stars captain.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey will be his vice and South African-based goalkeeper Richard Ofori will serve as the second vice.

This is according to the Ghana Football Association.

The Football Association on their website said“The Technical team of the senior national team, the Black Stars, upon a broad consultation, has maintained Andre Ayew as Captain of the side.

The Swansea City attacker who led Ghana to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, maintains his position as leader of the team despite changes at the technical realm of the senior national team.

In a related development, Thomas Teye Partey of Atletico Madrid has been appointed as 1st Vice Captain while Richard Ofori steps in as 2nd Vice Captain.

The trio will lead the team as the Black Stars go through the remaining Africa Cup of Nation qualifiers as well as the qualifying games for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and subsequent tournaments”
