Andre Ayew signed for £20.5m then injured just 20 minutes into his debut is meant to be out until November — but his national FA have a cunning plan
West Ham’s crocked record buy Andre Ayew has been summoned home by Ghana FA chiefs… to be treated with HERBAL MEDICINE, writes Steve Goodman in the Sunday People.
The striker, a £20.5million summer signing from Swansea, injured his thigh 20 minutes into his debut against Chelsea.
The Hammers‘ boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed Ayew will be sidelined until the end of November.
But Ghana’s technical director has urged the 26-year-old to return home so he can undergo plant and herbal treatments – insisting they will get Ayew fit in just a fortnight.
And Oti Akenteng said he will press the player’s dad, Ghana legend Abedi Pele, to order his son back.
Akenteng said: “There are a lot of herbal medical doctors, who can use traditional medicine to cure Andre Ayew’s injury in just two weeks.
“I will speak to his father about that.
“I believe that if he comes to Ghana and returns as a fit person, his manager would have no other option than to use him.”
