Ghana Player of the Week: Jordan Ayew - Olympique Marseille

Ghana Player of the Week
AGE 20
FOR Marseille
AS Nancy 1-0 Olympique Marseille

The 20-year-old went into the weekend after a not too impressive display for the Black Stars of Ghana in their 2-0 win over Malawi in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. But Jordan quickly put that behind him and again proved why the Marseille officials wanted to keep him, despite several offers on their table. Jordan, the last son of football legend, Abedi Pele was on hand at the right time to head in a cross from his senior brother, Dede Ayew to help the Stade Velodrome side to maintain their 100 percent record after a 1-0 victory over Nancy. The young striker looked lively on the pitch and added a lot to the Marseille game plan. That was his third goal this season after hitting a brace in the 2-0 victory over Fc Sheriff in the last stage of the Uefa Europa League qualifiers.

Congratulations to Ayew,'s 3rd Ghana Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mention

Collins Addo (Berekum Chelsea)

The 21-year-old deserves the credit for their 1-0 win over TP Mazembe as Berekum Chelsea signed off their campaign in the Caf Champions League with a win. Addo was vigilant at all times to make sure he ends the game without conceding. At a point he had to tip over a dangerous cross with a number of Mazembe forwards including Tresor Mputu Mabi and Mbwana Samata lurking. 

Kwadwo Asamoah (Juventus)

The 23-year-old again passed another test this weekend. This time around, he came from the bench to score Juve’s third goal in the 3-1 win over Genoa. Even before that, he won a penalty for the Old Lady which was converted by Mirko Vucinic.

Kwame Karikari (AIK)

Kwame Karikari scored the first goal in the 49th minute of the Stockholm derby. The goal was his fourth in five games which has made him a regular starter for the Solna-based club.
