The Black Stars skipper could not believe his eyes as he left the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after Black Stars training without some valuables
Ghana captain Andre Ayew experienced one of the shocks of his life when he was mobbed by some fans in Kumasi on Thursday after Black Stars’ last training ahead of the 2022 Fifa World Cup playoffs first leg against Nigeria.
Ayew, 32, who has been ruled out of the game due to suspension, arrived at the stadium to support his teammates and welcome the debutants who were handed their maiden call to the national team.
After a successful training and media interaction, Ayew was mobbed by over hundred fans who were hailing him while others wanted to have a picture with him for future memories.
In the process, the former Swansea City captain, who now plies his trade in Qatar with giants Al Sadd, lost his watch and gold chain worth around £20,000 in the process.
Although, the person who stole the items was not seen immediately as police escorted Ayew to the team bus, a video circulating on social media had one guy making a confession behind the scenes of having the valuables.
