Former Ghana international, Rahim Ayew, has strongly defended his brothers after the heavy criticisms they received following the Black Stars' early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Some fans of the Black Stars wanted Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew dropped from the Black Stars, blaming the brothers for Ghana AFCON disaster.
However, their senior brother, Rahim Ayew responded to the critics on Adom TV, stating they are unbothered by the criticisms and will continue to serve the nation.
"Trust me, personally if I tell you I watch TV then I am lying. We are not bothered with what is going on at all," he told Adom TV.
"Why should we be bothered?," he quizzed. "Sometimes you look at the person criticizing you and your life, there is a big difference so why should we waste our time on such a person.
"You can try and take us from Ghana football but the name will still remain for years. What God has written, no man can take away. We have children, the name Ayew ill still be there," he added.
Rahim Ayew was a member of the Black Stars team that reached the quarter finals of the World Cup in 2010, South Africa. The 33-year-old played for Ghana between 2009 to 2010.
His younger brother Andre Ayew is the captain of the Black Stars, while Jordan Ayew is the lead forward of the team.
