Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew, has confirmed that the injury he sustained in the AFCON qualifier against Sao Tome is not serious.
The 31-year old picked up the injury late in the game as the Black Stars recorded a 3-1 win against Sao Tome and Principe at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Ayew following a late challenge in injury time had to be attended to by the medics and was helped out of the field with a big strap on his lower left leg.
With concerns of his injury being serious, the Black Stars captain has assured Swansea City fans that the injury is not severe as feared
“It’s a knock,” Ayew said at the post-match conference.
“The doctors have seen it. I can put my leg on the floor. There won’t be any issue.”
And on his side’s qualification for the next edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, Ayew said: “I want to congratulate the whole squad for qualifying.
“In our country, because we are used to qualifying, we see it as a formality.
“We have to be very proud and happy with what we and the coaching staff have done.”
Ayew has been a key figure for Steve Cooper’s side this season, scoring 14 goals in 36 Championship appearances for the club.
Swansea return to action against Birmingham City on Friday night.
