Why Did Jordan Ayew Fight With Players From The Central African Republic? – GFA Clarifies

Ghana’s football association spokesperson, Henry Asante Twum, has provided the history of the altercation that broke out between players and Central African Republic officials after Ghana’s 4-3 victory on Monday, June 10, 2024.

Following the game at Baba Yara Sports Stadium, a brawl broke out between Black Stars assistant coach Joseph Laumann and hat-trick hero Jordan Ayew.

Henry Asante Twum described the sequence of events that culminated in the fight, revealing that Jordan Ayew was standing up for his teammates who were being verbally harassed by a Central African Republic player and his assistant coach

The player made some crude comments in French, Asante Twum clarified, not realizing that Jordan Ayew and a few other Black Stars players were fluent in the language.

Jordan Ayew became enraged after hearing the purportedly offensive remarks and decided to address the player about them.

Laumann, who is also fluent in French, challenged C.A.R.’s assistant coach when he made similar remarks.

“I’ve been told that following the game, a player from the Central African Republic and their assistant coach made disparaging remarks about the Black Stars players in French. Jordan confronted him because they were unaware of his proficiency in French,” he claimed.

Because Joseph Laumann speaks French well, he approached the assistant coach. Although our assistant coach was initially attacked by the assistant coach of C.A.R., we were able to diffuse the situation and prevent it from getting worse. He said on Asempa FM, “They were trying to paint a picture of us robbing them, and even their coach abandoned the post-match press conference.”

At the Baba Yara Stadium, Jordan Ayew’s second hat-trick gave the Black Stars a 4-3 victory over C.A.R. The other goal for the Black Stars was scored by Fatawu Issahaku.

The Black Stars have nine points from four games, good for second place in Group I for now.
