Murtala Mohammed, Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, has urged Ghanaians to be patient with Black Stars captain Andre Dede Ayew.
The member of parliament has advised Ghanaians to refrain from criticizing Dede Ayew for missing the penalty in the World Cup game against Uruguay.
Murtala Mohammed believes Ghanaians are unfair to Dede Ayew because he has been one of the best players so far.
“Ghanaians have been unfair to Dede, this gentleman has been working, there is no player in the Black Stars who has killed himself for the Black Stars than Dede. They hated his father and they are doing that to his son.
“This guy has dedicated himself to the Black Stars. Tell me which Black Stars player has sacrificed himself for the team more than Dede,” he said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday, December 3.
He stressed, “I am not just defending Dede, I will defend anyone at any time, I defended Asamoah Gyan.”
In the 16th round, the Nationa Black Stars were disqualified. Despite scoring two goals, Uruguay was unable to qualify after South Korea scored two goals against Portugal.
