Countryman Songo upset despite Ghana’s win over Mali; slams Partey


Ghanaian sports broadcaster Patrick Osei Agyemang, popularly known as Countryman Songo, has voiced his criticism of the Black Stars’ technical team for their decision to bench Jordan Ayew in Ghana’s 2-1 victory over Mali.

Expressing his discontent, Songo suggested that Jordan’s exclusion from the starting lineup was part of a larger agenda against the Ayew family, which he found particularly troubling.

He went further to allege that there was a deliberate effort by the technical team to sideline Jordan, whom he regards as the team’s most talented player.

“It was a plan to bench Jordan Ayew; that’s why you benched him. Jordan Ayew is better than all the current players on the Black Stars. He is ahead of all of them,” he said.

He contended that Thomas Partey pales in comparison to Jordan, emphasizing that the skipper’s position at Arsenal is a testament to his privilege.

Supporting his assertion, he highlighted Partey’s role as a substitute at Arsenal, suggesting that it underscores his lack of impact compared to Jordan.

“He (Joran Ayew) is number 1, then Kudus follows. He is ahead of all of them. For Partey, he’s been privileged to play for Arsenal. Even at Arsenal, he is a bench warmer. Be honest, and the Black Stars will fare well,” he asserted.

Jordan Ayew, initially benched in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Mali, emerged as the hero with the match-winning goal in the 2-1 triumph.

Despite his limited playing time of less than 20 minutes, Ayew showcased his brilliance, earning plaudits as one of the standout performers of the evening.

The victory has reignited Ghana’s World Cup qualification aspirations, propelling them to third place in the group, level on 6 points with Madagascar and Comoros, who occupy the top two spots.

Following his remarkable impact against Mali, Jordan is anticipated to feature from the start in the upcoming Black Stars’ encounter against the Central African Republic, scheduled for today, June 10, 2024, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
