Jordan Ayew gets one-match ban for quickest Ligue 1 red card ever

Jordan Ayew was shown the red card in their match over the weekend

Marseille and Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has been banned for one match by the French football authorities for the bizarre red card he got over the weekend. 

The decision by the Disciplinary Committee of the French Football League means the enterprising youngster will miss Saturday’s early kick off against Valenciennes. 

The 21-year-old set an unwanted Ligue 1 record for the quickest sending off ever, after he made a dreadful cameo appearance in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Evian Thonon Gaillard at Parc des Sports.

Ayew arrived as a second-half substitute with the tie all-square, but lasted just 111 seconds before being given his marching orders after a second bookable offence.

Marseille were already a man down after Kasim Abdallah saw red after fouling Saber Khlifa in the box, allowing Evian’s Yannick Sagbo to score from the penalty spot, cancelling out Andre-Pierre Gignac’s impressive opener on 50 minutes.

Ayew replaced Mathieu Valbuena on 73 minutes and was booked within 60 seconds for his first foul of the game.

Then, moments later, referee Antony Gautier was left with no choice but to produce a second yellow card, after Ayew jumped for a 50/50 with Pavel Ninkovic with his studs showing, as Marseille broke free from an Evian corner.

Abdallah has also been banned for match ruling him out of the match against Valenciennes.

Marseille stay third in Ligue 1 on 43 points from 24 games, eight adrift of leaders Paris Saint-Germain, having failed to win a league game since January 19, when they edged Montpellier at the Stade Velodrome in a 3-2 victory.

    WE CAN’T WIN ANY CUP WITH THESE UNQUALIFIED KUMASI COACHES,WE SHOULD GET RID OF THEM.wise up.

  2. African consciousness says:

    This Ayew should not be recalled to join the Black Stars! Only one Ayew is good enough for the Black Stars and Jordan is not the one!

    Ghana FA should bring on a Coach who the players will never say at the back of their minds “I am better than you because I played in a bigger Club in Europe. I played in the World Cup and you did not”. There are only two such Ghanaians, Desailly and Stephen Appiah. Desailly is ready right now and Stephen Appiah could be one of his assistants, he will be good at motivating the players and a good influence in the locker room.

    Desailly is a former defender and will coach good defense. He played for some of the biggest Clubs in the EPL and the Italian league. He played the World Cup with France and won it. He has experienced soccer at its highest level and will not be intimidated, he will be a good replacement as Ghana head Coach. Klinsman did not have any Coaching experience prior to the 2006 World Cup in Germany but was successful. Germany had talent and so does Ghana. Stephen Appiah will also be respected by the players because he played for Juventus and Fernerbahce two of the biggest Clubs in Europe and he also played in the World Cup as Ghana captain.

    Hire them and fire Coach Appiah!
