Despite the climate of suspicion surrounding tonightâ€™s OM-Montpellier clash, there is no question for AndrÃ© Ayew about giving his best.
Didier Deschampsâ€™s men, who are now out of the running for a European position in the Championship, will oppose Lyon on Saturday at the Stade de France in the League Cup final, OMâ€™s last chance for a trophy this season.
The men are physically and morally worn out after their double clashes with Bayern Munich and their defeat at the Parc des Princes, so the question on many punditsâ€™ lips is, are Marseille going to give their all just three days before this crucial encounter?
This even more so, given that a group of Marseille supporters called on their team to sacrifice themselves in order to assist Montpellier in their race for the title against Marseilleâ€™s sworn enemy, PSG.
But for AndrÃ© Ayew, OM will fight for the three points at the VÃ©lodrome on Wednesday evening.
â€œI understand that the supporters donâ€™t want PSG to be champion. Â As a Marseillais, I wouldnâ€™t be terribly happy if PSG was champion. Â But we will remain professionnel. Â Whatâ€™s important to us when weâ€™re on the pitch, is to do everything we can to win,â€ stated the international Ghanaian.
LoÃ¯c RÃ©my and CÃ©sar Azpilicueta have been withdrawn for the clash, but Coach Didier Deschamps preferred not to leave a shadow of a doubt about his teamâ€™s upcoming performance.
"If Montpellier win, it will be because they earned it.â€
Whatever the case, Paris Saint-Germain will certainly have their eye on the outcome of this important match.
