Fenerbahce boss Phillip Cocu is ready to appoint Ghana star Andre Ayew as the new skipper of Turkish side Fenerbahce.
Ayew who is on loan from Swansea has been in fine form for the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium outfit and his boss insists he is also respected by all peers and can lead them.
“I have one request, I want you to become the leader of the team. Everyone respects you,” Fotomac quoted Cocu as he told Ayew.
“You will play various offensive roles also on the field,”
Currently, Goalkeeper Volkan Demirel is the skipper of the side but is expected to part ways with the armband soon.
Ayew, 28, is not new to such roles as he captained Ghana Under 20 almost a decade ago and was at times given the armband also at Marseille and Swansea.
