Don't compare Andre to his father Abedi Pele - ex-Marseille chief Tapie
Former Marseille president Bernard Tapie has played down comparisons between Andre Ayew and his father Abedi Pele .
Tapie believes Andre has more catching up to do to meet the mark set by his father in the game.
The 23-year-old has become a firm staple at the club he joined as an amateur but Tapei says the two are incomparable.
“I do not know if Andre Ayew can compare himself to the talent his father had, not at all,” Tapie told Marseille’s official website.
“To me they are miles apart. Abedi was the most technically gifted player I had even before Enzo Francescoli, Dede is good but not to the level of Abedi. Obviously, his father is more gifted.”
It was Tapie’s tenure at the Stade Velodrome when Marseille won the 1993 UEFA Champions League but he was accused of fixing a match with Valenciennes.
He was charged and the club was demoted to the second-tier League in France.
The impressive impact of Andre Ayew is what has sparked a comparison with his father Abedi Pele who is an absolute legend because of his style of play and commitment. Of the two, who do you think is the best and why? Make your views known in the box below:
