Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac has charged Jordan Ayew to end his goal scoring drought in Ghana’s match against Zimbabwe.
Jordan Ayew has been on poor form, especially at club side—scoring just once in 42 appearance for Crystal Palace. He recently made headlines worldwide when he missed a golden chance in Crystal Palace’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Palace Manager Patrick Viera said after the game that Jordan may be suffering from lack of confidence. “Jordan was like every other player, everybody was really disappointed not to take the three points.
“Obviously Jordan missing the chance was important but when he doesn’t score, especially a forward, here is a lack of confidence and self-belief. It is my responsibility to bring him back to what he can do and scoring goals,” Vieira said.
After joining Ghana camp ahead of their clash against Zimbabwe, coach Milo was seen training footages dedicating special time for Ayew—literally teaching him how to shoot and score goals.
Speaking about Ayew’s loss of form at the pre-match interview, Milovan Rajevac said the crisis he is going through is very normal for strikers, and he backs him to rediscover his form starting from Black Stars’ match against Zimbabwe.
“This is something very common for goal scorers. Sometimes they have some crises and find it difficult to score goals but we are here to support our player and it is important for him to have our support and to understand this is a team game,” coach Milo said.
“So it is important to score goals and sometimes you assist , and we have few other strikers in the team and we believe we can make this work and I hope that his goal drought will probably end tomorrow.”
