Andre Ayew intends enjoying his brief holidays in Ghana after powering Olympique Marseille to their final win of 2012 over the weekend.
The Ghana international’s towering header on the stroke of halftime was enough to hand Les Phoceens the vital win over Saint Etienne on Sunday.
The win sees Elie Baup’s side move join top in Ligue 1 on 38 points – the same as leaders PSG and second-placed Olympique Lyon.
Ayew will now take a brief time out before joining the Black Stars team for the pre-2013 Nations Cup camp in Abu Dhabi.
He now says the hard fought win – the final for Marseille in 2012 will make his relaxation in Ghana even more better.
"It's a tough game, but we knew that,” he said.
“We scored before the break, it boosted us a lot.
“We wanted to leave the game in St-Etienne, as a very strong collective team haven encountered some difficulties in recent times.
“And this galvanized the team, we players do something good this season, we try to prove it every game.
“But hopefully we will not implode and should continue to work.
“All games like this, we must learn to feed and learn. Progress is needed especially in the final third. Now we will enjoy the holidays.”
