Ghana striker Jordan Ayew says he wants to return to Marseille when his loan spell at Sochaux expires at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old is delighted to have revived his club and international career at Sochaux thanks to coach Herve Renard who has acquired him on a six-month deal.

Ayew, whose contract with at Marseille ends in June 2015, believes he has become an improved player since leaving the Stade Velodrome this winter.

The son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele claims he was unhappy at Marseille where he was down the pecking order.

"The most important thing was to play regularly,” Ayew told beIN Sports .

“To qualify for a place at the World Cup, I decided to pack my bags and join Sochaux. But the story with Marseille is not over, I do not want to leave this club without leaving a footprint. Leaders know.

"On the pitch, I give 200%. I made ??a lot of effort in my behaviour, I'm on the right track. I better understand it now.

“In Marseille, I woke up in the morning and I do not necessarily have the motivation to train.

“Fortunately, there were people, like my brother, to support me. It was time to go to smile again. Here, I work two or three times because I feel good."

    He should let his actions speak. Just playing might not be enough. How you play is very important. Score goals...

    You were crying for more playing time and you got it at Socahux, the question is, how many goals have you scored so far. Just forget about black stars buddy.

    Hmmmm. If I were you I will concentrate more now on how to make the maximum use of the playing time enjoying at Sochaux by banging in the goals. Remember, you have so far played four matches with no goal and assists. This is very bad for a striker coming from a team like as Marseilles. You are not making any impact at Sochaux, you know?

    Thats life. sometimes you need a change of scenery to stay motivated. but just make sure you don't get back down in Marseille. find a way to stay motivated without your brothers help. We all want to be successful but we don't have the drive. Good Luck!
