Ghana star midfielder Andre Ayew aiming to remain on the rise

Andre Ayew wants to keep on developing his style of play

Marseille star André Ayew believes he “can still do better” despite playing a lead role in his club’s excellent Ligue 1 campaign.

The Ghanaian international may have been ignored by his country for the on-going Africa Cup of Nations, but the Black Stars’ loss is Marseille’s gain with the elder of the Ayew brothers having struck a rich vein of form.

A tally of four goals in six games, embellished by a strike and an assist in last weekend’s 3-2 defeat of Montpellier Hérault SC, has helped move Marseille to within a point of league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, but the 23-year-old expects there is even better to come.

“I had a very difficult start to the season, but I knew that it would come back little by little,” said Ayew, who did not score the first of his six L1 strikes until OM’s 2-0 win at AC Ajaccio in Week 11.

“Since November, I’ve been on the same upward trajectory. But I can still do better.”

The reason for Ayew’s slow start to the campaign was the rustiness accrued during a three-month lay-off following a shoulder operation in late April.

Though the problem meant he could do nothing to help OM end last season on a more positive note, it did have some benefits.

“To keep the ball, I used my arms a lot when I was dribbling. When you can’t do that, you adapt,” he said.

“I’ve watched myself play a few times. Now, I play more simply, it’s helped me improve.”

    Who in his right mind will leave out a player of such pedigree in his final squad going into a tournament of such magnitude? On what grounds? Is it loss of form, or indiscipline ,or injury or failure of him to report to camp on time ?is any of these a good enough reason for his exclusion? Only time will tell. I hope as a Nation we don’t live to regret this one day.

    The real king in ghana soccer,akwasi apiah is a shit and a fool he listen to the jounalist in ksi,and those people hate ayew

  6. Papadinho says:

    Ha i said it and i will say it again, Ghana will miss Ayew on the mid mid. His energy always motivates the other players to step up their game. aaah.
    No cup for Ghana at this Afcon maybe 2015.
    God bless Ghana

  7. Papadinho says:

    Can;t believe that he was on his way to the Ghana camp Kwasia Appiah called him and said there is no need of him coming there. wtf. what’s wrong with this coach? if u don’t believe me check on youtube.

    I support you guys even Gyan who broke our heart and retired because he didn’t want us to talk about the mistakes he has been making causing the nation a major tournement.Why did AA begged him and even handed the captain band to him. Dede has done a lot better by leading the under 20 to become the first in Africa to win the cup. In South Africa 2010 he was the best Ghana player and his assist to Gyan created our goal against USA. Last Nation’s cup he was playing with injuries. Why Zambia won the last nation’s cup? They won it cos Katongo is an inspirational captian. My question, is Gyan an inspirational captain? Forget about Abedi, Dede should have been the captain of the time cos he will die for the nation the way he did for the u20 team. Can Gyan stop thinking about his oil money and music career to inpire to team?
