Black Stars vice captain and 2015 Afcon top scorer Andre Ayew told reporters upon the team’s arrival in Accra on Monday.

“The feeling of losing a second Afcon final got me very emotional and I couldn’t control it. It was really difficult for me to take.

“I thought we just deserved the trophy. We played well and put in a lot of effort,” the pain of a second loss after Sunday’s encounter against Cote d’Ivoire was too much all Ghanaians especially the players who put in more than 100%!….“It was very difficult to accept the loss, but that is football. We are hoping that we win it next time,” Asamoah Gyan

Ayew Explains Tears. Ayew Explains Tears

Many including the Minister of Youth and Sports Mahama Ayariga, Cote d’Ivoire coach Herve Renard, his junior brother Jordan Ayew tried in vain to console the talismanic midfielder.

Cote d’Ivoire  beat Ghana under the same circumstances in 1992 when his father Abedi Pele was captain of the Black Stars “When again are we going to come this close? It is very unfortunate.

Am sure Ghana will take home the Afcon cup next time.
