Marseille ace Andre Ayew conceded ‘it hurts’ to hear the club’s fans boo his team even after they broke through for a win on Friday.

Ayew struck a hat-trick for Marseille as they won 3-1 over visiting Ajaccio at the Stade Velodrome but the performance did not see the south coast club avoid a vicious reception from their fans.

Before the game, insults towards Marseille coach Jose Anigo and president Vincent Labrune were found scrawled all over the club’s training base, while during the contest, the supporters vented their frustration at six-match winless streak that ended against Ajaccio.

Ayew said it was a tough atmosphere to play in but conceded he and his team-mates could not ‘blame’ Marseille’s fans for reacting that way.

“It hurts,” the Ghanaian midfielder said.

“The worst is that you cannot really blame them. Our results were not up to par.”
