Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Murtala Mohammed, has asked Ghanaians to stop vilifying the captain of the Black Stars Dede Ayew for missing the penalty in the game against Uruguay in the World Cup.
He said Ghanaians are being unfair to him because he gave his all to the Black Stars.
“Ghanaians have been unfair to Dede, this gentlemen 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.”
Georgian De Arrascaeta scored twice for Uruguay to beat Ghana 2-0, but it wasn’t enough to send them to the last 16.
