Captain of the Black Stars and Swansea Player Andre Ayew says that pressure group Black Lives Matter will eventually achieve equality but that will take a lot of time and efforts to achieve that feat.

The group which was sparked into action by the killing of Black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota sparked a lot of anti racist campaigns across the USA and the world over.

In recent times the group has come under the microscope with the Premier League deciding against using it on sleeves of jerseys due to their political undertones creeping in.

According to Andre Ayew the movement can achieve its goal but it may not be during this generation.

"I think the movement can achieve what we all want - equality, that's all," Ayew told

"We've been through this so long that we just feel like enough is enough. Let everything be okay for everyone, let's just let it be equal for everyone.

"It's going to be hard but if we all keep believing and feeling like everything we're doing is right and for the right cause, then I think that we'll make it.

"Everything goes with a process. Start every day, move forward, higher and higher - and I feel like people are understanding what we mean.

"When I feel not only black people standing and talking about it, even white people, then you know that you're starting to get somewhere.

"It's going to be very hard but we need to keep believing in what we're doing and get the equality that we want to get, that's the main thing.

"At the end of the day, maybe this generation will not enjoy that equality but the next one will get it if we keep doing what we're doing."

The 30-year old attacker, whose father -Abedi Pele- one of pioneers of African footballers to arrive in Europe and excel in the 80's and 90's, disclosed the age long problem would need strong authority to end.

"If you look back to the years before my dad's time, it was even worse than now. These players like my dad paved the way for everyone to come in and prove that black people can do the job in Europe," said Ayew.

"I remember playing in Russia in the Europa League versus (Zenit) St. Petersburg, getting bananas thrown everywhere.

"People have gone through worse, I'm talking about my personal experience, but I've seen friends going through things and I just feel like that's not how it should be.

"We need to make sure that we stamp our foot on the floor and make sure that it changes. Nothing's easy but we need to keep going and not give up in what we believe in. I think that can take the world to another level."
