Abraham Boakye, widely known as ‘One Man Supporter’ and the President of the Ghana Supporters Union, has put forward a unique proposal urging the Ghanaian government to enter into an agreement with legendary football figure Abedi Ayew ‘Pele.’ Boakye suggests preserving Pele’s sperm to be used in producing future talented footballers for the nation.
Abedi Pele, hailed as one of Ghana’s greatest footballers, has garnered praise for fathering accomplished players, including Andre and Jordan Ayew, both active members of the Black Stars.
Boakye believes that Abedi Pele possesses exceptional genetic traits for producing football talent and is advocating for a strategic initiative to harness this potential.
“For me, to give birth to four children and get three footballers out of them…I said the last time that the government should reach an agreement with him [Abedi Pele] and compensate Maha, his wife, then get Maestro’s semen and keep it at the vital house in Tema,” expressed Boakye during an interview on Angel TV, as quoted by Ghanaweb.
He further explained that by preserving Abedi Pele’s semen, it could be made available for women struggling with fertility, envisioning the possibility of nurturing future football talents.
According to Boakye, such an initiative could yield numerous footballers, emphasising the need to honour Abedi Pele’s contribution to Ghanaian football.
Abedi Pele, a national icon from the 1980s and 1990s, played a pivotal role in Ghana’s last AFCON triumph in 1982 and achieved individual honours, including being named African Footballer of the Year three consecutive times. His notable achievements extend to winning the UEFA Champions League with Olympique Marseille.
The Ayew football legacy continues with Abedi’s brother Kwame Ayew, who also represented Ghana in the 2000s. Three of Abedi Pele’s sons, Rahim, Jordan, and Andre, have followed in their father’s footsteps by representing the national team. Andre Ayew, the current captain of the Black Stars, holds the record for Ghana’s most-capped player with 114 games
