Rahim Ayew, Ghana ‘s brother and forward Crystal Palace, Jordan Ayew, said his younger brother had gathered enough experience to be named Deputy Captain of Ghana ‘s senior national team, the Black Stars.
Rahim is also a former Ghanaian international, who played a handful of seven Black Star games between 2009 and 2010.
Jordan Ayew has dominated the headlines in recent times for his magnificent performance at the Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.
The 28-year-old ‘s excellent performances were praised at Crystal Palace ‘s night gala awards at the end of the season. He had a hat trick of trophies including Players’ Player of the Year, Goal of the Week, and his spectacular Messi-esque goal against West Ham crowned the goal of the season.
Rahim indicated that his brother would be given an significant role in the national senior team. According to him, Jordan, who has been on the team since 2010, deserves to be an assistant captain.

While he acknowledges that Black Star coach Charles Akonnor has the power to make a decision, he believes that the 28-year-old has the requisite qualities to lead in the absence of the substantive captain Andre Ayew and Jonathan Mensah.
Former Black Star coach Kwesi Appiah made Andre captain in the run up to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, with Kwadwo Asamoah appointed Deputy.
“What I know personally, apart from Dede [Andre Ayew] and Jonathan Mensah, I think Jordan should be the next captain because he’s been there for a long time, but the coach has the power to decide.
Nonetheless, for the time being, I believe he deserves to be the assistant captain, because he has the character and he is also the chief, “Rahim said.
Jordan made his debut with the Black Stars in 2010 against Swaziland. Until then, he has played 61 games and scored 17 goals.
