Ghana captain Andre Ayew has started pre-season training with Al Sadd for the first time after joining the Qatari club.

The 31-year-old joined the Middle East club as a free agent after leaving Swansea City.

Ayew looked active as he trained with his new teammates and under the guidance of the legendary Xavi Hernandez who has been coaching Al Sadd since 2019.

He signed a two-year deal with the Wolves last month and clearly wants to be in the best shape ahead of the 2021/2022 season.

Al Sadd are camping in Barcelona and they will be in Spain until the 14th of August, before returning to Qatar.

Xavi’s side won the league last season and will be hoping to defend it as well as win the Asian Champions League.

The Qatari league does not start until the middle of September, so fans of the club will have to be patient, but there are three friendly games scheduled for the team while they stay in Barcelona.

The club has a few familiar faces in world football with Algerian Afcon winning star striker Baghdad Bounedjah and former Arsenal midfielder Santi Carzola amongst the more prominent names in the team.

A few years ago, Al Sadd started a project which was centered around continental dominance and they started recruiting some of the most experienced and talented names in world football.
