Ghana legend Abedi Pele has backed his son Jordan Ayew to end his goal drought sooner rather than later.

The Ghanaian international arrived at Sochaux in January but has failed to live up to expectation after scoring just once so far.

However, iconic Ghanaian football figure Abedi Pele,  retains the utmost confidence in his son to start scoring and finds the recent setback as ‘normal in football’.

“It is normal in football. Once in a while a player goes through such difficult times,” Pele is quoted by the Daily Guide.

“But in time, those difficult moments would be over and he will rediscover his rhythm. He has started scoring, the lean season will soon be over.”

The 22-year-old joined Herve Renard side from Marseille for regular football action to enhance his chances of making it to the World Cup in Brazil but has so far not been up to scratch in the French Lique 1.

    Jordan will come good. He is immensely blessed with great talent. He just need to practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice and more practice.
