We don't understand how supporters want us to be in this tough moment

The support has been there for a long time. The various groups that came up for the support of the national team was out of passion. There was one man called ONE-MAN supporter who was always with the Black Star and defending them all the time. The untold fact about this man is that, he flew to abroad to watch Ghana Black Stars match without a passport which was possible for him with the passion and zeal to watch the national players play without missing an inch. Deep into the second-half, after Ghana’s third goal, the missiles started to be directed at 500 Ghana fans gathered in a segregated corner. As play continued, police opened up a gate at the front of the stand and Ghanaians streamed forward onto the running track surrounding the pitch, running a fresh gauntlet of home fans behind one goal.


The match was finally suspended amid extraordinary scenes. The players were huddled on the pitch, unwilling to head for the tunnel in the mainstand where much of the violence was originating. Forty minutes passed as a military helicopter flew in low circles above them, a stadium announcer pleading for the home fans to desist. When they continued, smoke bombs and baton-wielding police chased Equatorial guinea supporters from the stands. Ghana’s fans, admirably restrained throughout, eventually made it to the opposite corner of the ground. Riot police cleared the lower tier of Equatorial guineans before leading the Ghanians into the vacated seats. At least four were bleeding, dozens were in tears. They damaged Ghana's preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations in 2012 and 2013, and at the 2014 World Cup the players threatened to boycott training before the Ghana Football Association flew $3m in cash out to the squad in Brazil to resolve the situation.

Ayew is aware there is work to be done to repair the relationship with the fans but feels some of the problems stem from some media reports, which he insists do not always accurately portray the players' attitudes.


But what we are hearing now adays is to bring back the love. Supporting is from ones free will and not by force. Considering the presence most aggrieved fans their complains is all about the fact that the focus of the players and the management of the team have shifted from playing the game and winning them to money. All the players will tell the populace they have family and they must be fed which is an insult and made supporters vexed. "The players have always given 100%," Ayew told BBC Sport. "I don't blame our people in Ghana if they are not sure about that because that's the story they are told, it is the image that some people want to create about us. We have the Nations Cup plus the World cup qualifiers so everybody needs to be focused and especially consistent. Andre Ayew. "But I always said if we are going to give our explanation and wait for people's speculation we are never going to get over this. "We should just put it behind us and move forward because we, the players, love the country the same way the fans love the country. "The players want to keep making the country proud and the only way we can do that is when we see the fans backing us.
