Ghana striker Jordan Ayew says getting a chance to play at the 2014 World Cup factored into his decision to join Sochaux on loan.

The 22-year-old has left Olympique Marseille to join Sochaux until the end of the season.

Jordan has been struggling all season long to secure regular first team action with the French giants.

He has managed just seven starts in 16 appearances for Marseille in Ligue 1.

His bit-part role was increasingly becoming a threat to his chances of making the Ghana squad for the 2014 World Cup – especially with competition from very active players.

And the son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele wants to remain very relevant in the plans of coach Kwesi Appiah thus his move to Sochaux in search of regular playing time.

“This is a World Cup year and I have to start playing week in and week out so that my national team coaches will see what I can do for my team when I am given the chance, so that was also part of my decision to join them,” he said.

“I am here to work and make this club one of the best teams in France and hopefully I can do that.”

    Good thinking from the young chap, , whilst some players are doing everything possible to command a regular playing time (essien and Jordan) to help their case in Brazil. Others whole haven’t warm the bench of their club for a season is showing nude picture on social media and throwing parties,k, knowing very well that their past with a club in Ghana will give them automatic call. Ghana for you! !
