The former Black Stars striker has advised the beleaguered forward on what to do to return to his fine scoring form after going almost 50 games without a goal
Former Ghana striker Prince Tagoe has advised Jordan Ayew on his movements during games in order to start scoring for Ghana and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Ayew, 30, has failed to score for both club and country after almost 50 games and has come under severe criticisms. He scored only a goal last season for Palace and has been fluffing opportunities in the Premier League.
Last week, the spokesperson for the Ayew brothers, Fiifi Tackie, defended the Crystal Palace forward that although he has not been scoring goals, his general contributions to the club and country have been immense and critics should also factor that in their assessments.
“Jordan Ayew is more of a team player than an individual player”, he told Happy FM.
“He doesn’t see anything wrong if he tries to assist than to score. Assess Jordan Ayew by his contribution on the pitch it is why Patrick Vieira will continue to use him,” he added.
However, Tagoe believes if Jordan doesn’t score in games, he should bear in mind that it amounts to not performing well.
“I spoke to Jordan Ayew some years back and he took my advice and everybody knew what he did. He should have it in mind that if he doesn’t score in a game then he didn’t perform,” Tagoe told Happy FM.
“He should focus on scoring and not holding onto the ball for long. He shouldn’t drop deep but stay at the attacking areas and concentrate on scoring,” he added.
Ayew is expected to start against Zimbabwe on Saturday at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers despite his troubles.
Reports from Cape Coast have revealed that Ayew will be used on the wings by new Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac unlike the position he was deployed by former coach Charles Kwablah Akonnor.
