The three-time African best mingled with the locals of Kawukudi on Thursday during the launch of the Sports retailing shop
Former Ghana captain Abedi Ayew Pele was at the launch of Decathlon Ghana’s shop in Kawukudi in Accra on Thursday.
In an event graced by France’s foreign minister Jean Yves Le Drian as the special guest of honour, Ayew was showered with praise for his numerous roles in football in Ghana and France.
“Ayew has been an excellent footballer and I’m very excited to have met him personally today,” Yves Le Drian said as quoted by AshesGyamera.com.
“I’m more happier because I’ve come to realise that one of his sons lived and played in a city I was the mayor some years back. I thank him for his roles in football in France and Ghana,” he added.
Pele said: “it always feels great to be with kids, especially those in sports.”
Decathlon Sports Firm whose slogan is “Sports for all – All for sports” are the official football retailers for Ghana Football Association and are the ones that brought the Kipsta footballs which are used for Ghana Premier League and Division One League games.
