Jordan Ayew: 'I can do it at OM'

Ligue 1 Conforama > News

Jordan Ayew believes he has the quality to establish himself at Olympique de Marseille, but the young striker is determined to first put all his talent into helping FC Sochaux-Montbéliard retain their top-flight status.

With his first-team opportunities severely limited at the Stade Vélodrome in the first half of the campaign, Ayew joined Sochaux on loan in January hoping to be given more time on the pitch.

The 22-year-old has made 14 Ligue 1 starts for Hervé Renard since his switch, exactly double the number of times he was present on the pitch at kick-off for OM this season. Though his current side find themselves in the relegation zone with just three games left, the Ghanaian international insisted he did not regret his decision to move.

"There's nothing better than playing every weekend. That's what Sochaux gives me, so I'm happy here," stated Ayew, who came through the OM youth ranks to follow in the footsteps of his father, Abedi Pele, and his elder brother, André.

"I'm capable of being an undisputed first-team regular at Marseille. For the moment, I want to play well at Sochaux and go to the World Cup. We'll see after that."
