Ghana captain Andre Ayew sees red on Le Havre debut

Published on: 26 November 2023

Ghana international Andre Ayew was given the marching orders in his first game for Le Havre in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The Black Stars captain debut for Le Havre didn’t go according to script as he was sent off minutes after coming on in his outfit game against Nantes at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau.

The former Fenerbache star was introduced into the game in the 65th minute mark, replacing Loïc Négo. Two Minutes later, the former Marseille and Swansea City star was red carded following a dangerous tackle on an opponent player.

The Ghana international hopes of a flying start to life on his return to France dashed, as his involvement in the game was cut short due to the red card. Ayew will be disappointed to have started his spell with Le Havre on bad note.

Ayew, who led the Black Satellites to clinch the FIFA U20 World Cup for the first time in African history is expected to miss some games for Le Havre after picking a straight red card in the week 13 fixture.

Meanwhile, he will be hoping to bounce back stronger following a disastrous debut for Le Havre, who are counting on the experienced Ghana forward for survival.

The 33-year-old joined Le Havre as a free agent before the November international break, having recently left Premier League side Nottingham Forest.
