Ayew sure of Sochaux safety in Ligue 1

The Ghanaian striker believes the struggling Ligue 1 side deserve more than relegation and they will fight to remain in the elite French division

Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew is ready to help Sochaux survive the French Ligue 1 as they sit just at the edge of the drop zone.

Ayew, who has scored four goals for Sochaux since his January loan move, will have to put in a great deal of effort in the remaining two games to keep their top flight status.

“We have been impressive in the last few matches we have played and I am excited with the outcome of the results we have had so far,” Football411 quotes Ayew.

“We are not safe and we want to do well at the end of the season, so we will keep fighting to the last game.”

He added: “A team like Sochaux can't be relegated because we have very strong and fantastic players who have fought very well from the start of the season to date, so I will be very surprised if we fail to beat relegation at the end of the season.”

“We need to get very good results in our last few matches, we cannot say we will be hoping for other teams to lose or not,” the 22-year-old added. “All that we have to do is to get the needed results and forget about the outcome of our opponents.”

Sochaux face Stade Rennes this weekend and end the season with a game against Evian Thonon.
