Ghanaians are praying for Olympique Marseille player Andre Dede Ayew to have a speedy recovery after the midfielder had a successful shoulder surgery in France on Tuesday April 24, 2012.
The 22-year-old’s service is needed as his country Ghana prepares for the 2014 World Cup qualifier. But he has been ruled out of two games – against Lesotho and Zambia in June.
The Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi in a statement said the association is delighted that Ayew’s operation was a success.
“Ghanaians are praying for you to recover properly and return to the game you love most. At this point all we can say is our thoughts are with you (Andre) and we hope you make a speedy recovery,” said Mr Nyantakyi.
Ayew is expected to be out of action for about three months.
