Ghana winger Andre Ayew believes Marseille trainer Elie Baup has silenced his critics and would reach a cult status at the Stade Velodrome.Â
The former Bordeaux manager has geared off to an impressive start in the Ligue 1 on his debut season with the former European champions; guiding them to an historic six consecutive wins from six games.
Marseille were sharply criticised for naming the former French international goalkeeper in the place of Didier Deschamps who quit the club to take over the French national team in July.
And the 22-year-old Andre who has scored thrice in Marseille's Uefa Europa League campaign this term, says Baup has justified Marseille's confidence in appointing him.
"He has been widely criticised for being named the Marseille manager, people said he had not achieved result in the past three years and bla-bla-bla," he told La Provence
"This season he has proved his quality to many people. He has a lot of desire, determination and gives us everything. He pushes us further. We're going to war together until the end of the season."
Andre was linked with a move to money-bags PSG and German giants Bayern Munich but he promised to remain with the nine time Ligue 1 champions.
