Marseille coach wants to harness Jordan Ayew's temperament

Published on: 27 November 2012

Marseille coach Elie Baup is looking at exploiting the positives of the temperament of striker Jordan Ayew. 

The 20-year-old scored the winner in last Sunday's 1-0 win against Lille in the French Ligue 1.

But the youngster has often been criticized for over reacting on the pitch of play.

Baup is delighted with Jordan's progress and wants him to channel his aggressiveness to aid the club.

"This is a player who rose to my eyes and his temperament is something positive that needs to be channeled," Baup said.

"It's really interesting to work with a temperamental player like that. It relies heavily on him but then there nature, in the heat of action should be channeled."

    A Ghanian coach would have said the same thing and given a practical example to convey the message... Please stop hating on our coaches. Remember that most of the stars that come out of the Ghanian Premier League into Europe are coached by Ghanians and they succeed when they go abroad so please give respect where it's due.

    Who is talking about violence? There is a difference between being temperamental and being violent. Please pick your words carefully. Jordan and Ayew are not violent by any stretch of the imagination.

    Ghanaian coach, the GFA and the entire Ghanaian population will not only casticagate him, but he will be dubed the Bad, arrogant, disrespectful guy. We all know what they did to Muntari. Ghanaian mind and for that matter African mentality is thousands of years behind in terms of positivity.

    Lets call a spade a spade. Jordan and his brother Dede's attitude nowadays is nt good. Being violent doesnt make u an excellent player but could rather ruin ur career down. Kwadwo asamoah is a calm player nd look at where he is now. Abedi must talk to his sons to calm down and concentrate on their career.
