Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew has returned to France following Ghana's early Africa Cup of Nations exit.

The veteran forward was however given a disappointing welcome, as his teammates teased him for his quick return.

In a video shared on social media, the players are seen trolling the Ghanaian attacker, while the caption read, "Welcome back, national enemy."

Ayew has been heavily criticised by fans of the national team following his underwhelming performances in Cote d'Ivoire. The former Swansea City player conceded the penalty which led to Ghana's collapse in the 2-2 draw against Mozambique.

Meanwhile, he managed to equal Rigobert Song's record of the most games played (36) at the Africa Cup of Nations, as reported by Pulse Ghana.

The son of legendary footballer Abedi Ayew was also making his eighth appearance at the tournament, joining Ahmed Hassan of Egypt and Song of Cameroon on the prestigious list.

Ayew is Ghana's most capped player, having made his Black Stars debut in 2008.

Mohammed Salisu apologises to Ghanaians

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Black Stars defender Mohammed Salisu has shared his disappointment following Ghana's early Africa Cup of Nations exit in Cote d'Ivoire.

The AS Monaco star also took the opportunity to apologise to the media for his actions after the game against Mozambique in Abidjan.

Ghana were knocked out of the 2023 AFCON after failing to win a game in Group B of the tournament.

Kudus pens apology to Black Stars fans

Sports Brief also reported that Mohammed Kudus penned a heartfelt apology to Ghanaians following the Black Stars' early Africa Cup of Nations elimination.

Ghana were knocked out of the tournament after a last-minute collapse in their final game against Mozambique last Monday.

The four-time African champions, who were on the verge of finishing second in Group B, threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in injury time.
