Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has won the Qatari Stars League with Al Sadd following an 8-2 victory over Al Ahli on Monday.

Ayew came on in the second half and scored twice as Al Sadd wrapped up the title in emphatic style. The win over Al Ahli saw Javi Garcia’s side move 10 points clear of second-placed Al-Duhail, making it mathematically impossible for their rivals to usurp them with three matches left.

This is Al Sadd’s third successive league title and their 16th triumph overall – a record-extending feat in the Qatari top-flight. Meanwhile, this is Ayew’s first league title in his career and his second trophy with Al Sadd after winning the Emir Cup some months ago. The 31-year-old joined the Qatari giants in July 2021 as a free agent, and put pen to paper on a two-year contract.

He made a bright start to life in Qatar, scoring seven goals in his first six matches for Al Sadd after his signing. The former Swansea City and West Ham United star has since scored 12 goals in 16 appearances for the Qatari champions and averages a goal every 84 minutes.

Osei Kuffour, who was a member of the Black Stars team that represented Ghana at its maiden World Cup in Germany, also disclosed how his mother had to sell the family’s television in order to purchase his football boots. “My mum stood behind me and lied to my sisters that the TV was with the repairers, but the TV was sold and I got the money to buy the boots.

Currently, the president of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG), Kuffour had a stellar career with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, where he won the UEFA Champions League in 2001 and a long list of trophies with the Bavarians.
