Andre Ayew: Marseille boosted by late Inter win

Published on: 23 February 2012

Ghana winger Andre Ayew believes his stoppage time winner against Inter Milan in the Uefa Champions League has re-ignited Olympique Marseille fans.

The 22-year-old beat the Inter defence to glance home at the death just when it seemed the game was heading for a draw to underscore his importance to the Marseille team.

Marseille go into the second leg with a slender 1-0 lead and Andre believes his goal has brought a new sense of believe among the Stade Velodrome faithful.

"The win feels good and we will not let go. The fans are happy and we will do everything to please them in all competitions," Andre told the club's website.

"This is a good result at home. We were able to stay focused and win the game."

Andre has taken his Champions League tally to three after netting a brace against German champions Borussia Dortmund in December.

    it all started in 1899 where Yaa Asantewaa wanted to rule Ghana.The Brits saw this as selfishness and got rid of her yet still she was proclaimed a hero. In 1957-1962, they conspired against Nkrumah.In the 1990?s they conspired agaisnt Abedi Pele and now his son.But currently we have a new civilised generation where junior national team captain OSEI freely relinquished his title to the born captain that lifted us to new heights.They still dislike the fact that he is the first african to touch an u-20 trophy.-WHO AM I

    @chu Your claims are pure Nonsense. This guy is divisive period. He must not learn to go the way of the father. His father was great. Nobody disputes that fact. Dede is rising but not follow the ugly past of the the Dad in the area of leadership. If he continues the greedy to be a captain, he will only have the trail the path of the father. Is Messi a captain? Hell No! Yet he is the best in the world. If he is meant by destiny to captain the BS not even the you chu can stop him. Humility and respect. Not arrogance.

    Eventhough he is half Ghanaian-half Lebanese, Andre Ayew embodies our greatest player right now. And he's just so young!! Can't imagine him in 2014! He will singlehandedly drag Ghana beyond the semi-finals of the World Cup!

    Dede is not arrogant, if u dont lik him 4 personal reasons fine but dont say he is proud. U shd appreciat this gem.

    I think he should not fight for captaincy in the team. He will definitely be captain so he should relax.

    I personally think being a gem in a team must not make u a captian. How ever i have made some observation about this Dede guy and realised when he captains a team he has some kind of power and inspiration and urging his team mates not to loose hope and encouraging them as well on the field.This i think is a sign of good leadership.May he rise high and make Ghana proud.

    Dede is a born leader there are a lot of talented players who don't have leadership qualities but Dede has both both talent and leadership and a strong will to win. His mentality, talent and desire to win is similar to Kobe Bryant to use a basketball analogy.
  • Fu-Chu says:

    Your analogy is right. He is a leader like Kobe. He is the cornerstone of the Black Stars and he is young and his age is "real"
