VOTE: ANDRE ‘DEDE’ AYEW AS BBC AFRICAN PLAYER OF THE YEAR


>>>>>CLICK HERE TO CAST YOUR VOTE ONLINE<<<<< 

The 21-year-old comes from a famous football family; his father Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew was a three-time CAF African Footballer of the Year, his uncle Kwame Ayew was a Ghanaian international and represented the country at the 1992 Olympics.

With that background, Dede has really had to prove himself from day one and it looks like the youngster is up for the challenge.

The winger has become the key player in Marseille’s success this year, helping them to clinch the French League Cup and Super Cup.

In fact it was his hat-trick that helped Marseille to rally from two goals down to beat champions Lille 5-4 in the Super Cup in July.

By the end of the season in May he had scored 11 goals for Marseille and so far this season he has netted four times for the French giants.

He was also instrumental in the Black Stars qualification for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations with an unbeaten record.

But things have not always been smooth sailing for Dede who is now beginning to come into his own.

It was his performances for Ghana at the 2010 World Cup that went a long way to giving him an identity of his own.

That tournament came after another great display for the Black Stars at the 2010 Nations Cup and a year earlier at the 2009 Under 20 World Cup when he captained Ghana to Africa’s first title at that level.

A year earlier, it was all so different for him.

He had been picked by Claude LeRoi, Ghana’s then French coach for the 2008 Nations Cup despite widespread criticism and when he failed to shine in the semi-finals, the criticism only got louder.

But he has risen from that remarkably, maturing on loan at Arles Avignon from Olympic Marseille before finally convincing Didier Deschamps he is good enough for the Marseille first team.

So far this season he has proved his worth and with 32 caps already at age 21, there is more to come.
