Inter Milan midfield Kwadwo Asamoah pulled out of Ghana 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia because of the presence of Ayew brothers, reports GHANAsoccernet.com.
Asamoah, 29, is thought to be dissatisfied with the controversial powerful duo returning to the team in connection with superstitious claims.
Inter Milan confirmed on Monday that Ghana International will not be available for the conflict with the East African country on November 18 due to recurring damage.
But the cause of the giants of Italy is under scrutiny in the West African nation with the conspiracy theory going on.
The former Juventus ess is expected to have little time on his international career over the couple.
Sources argue that the presence of the duo has abandoned his progress on the international scene in a country where superstitions are life burners.
Ayew brothers last presented to Black Stars in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Congo in Kumasi.
The pair would be in the leg of the leg in Brazzaville but they opted out of the squad after injury to Andre with Jordan who also suffers from stomach complications prior to the trip to Congo.
Asamoah returned from a four-year self-confessed exile before last month's double-game game against Sierra Leone, but the matches were interrupted after SLFA was given an indefinite ban on FIFA over government disturbances.
