Ayew’s Dad kills rumour he started!

andre-ayew-west-ham_3766957Andre Ayew’s father has dismissed talk of his son moving back to his old club Marseille…. which is a bit rich considering he was the guy who started the rumour.

Abedi Ayew Pele, himself a former player for the French club, has now claimed that the Ligue One outfit have no interest in bringing either or brother Jordan back to Ligue 1.

According to reports in France, Andre had been “scratching at the door” of Marseille following his injury-hit season with the Hammers.

However, Ayew senior, who was recently at Marseille for a youth tournament with his side Nania FC, said reports of his sons leaving their respective clubs were just speculation.

He said: “Well, I think that it’s just rumours.”

Interesting that because only last month Dad was reported as saying: “We will see from Marseille’s recruitment this summer just how far they want to go. It is possible that Andre will return to them one day.

“He is a child of the club, and Marseille made him into who he is today. He has a love for the club shirt, and the fans know that he is ready to do anything for his club.

Even after claiming  a move wasn’t on he managed to add: “In football things happen so fast and we are still looking forward to the few weeks and days ahead of us.”

  1. I think the key to it is the…..

    “It is possible that Andre will return to them one day.”

    And who is say he wont.Hardly claiming he is on his way back there this summer or indeed not particularly starting a rumour.

  2. Damn,i was hoping it was true

  3. Why?? He scored a few important goals for us.He was on the pitch to score them which is more than can be said for other forwards we have.

    • I liked him at swansea and i was happy we bought him even though i thought 20 million was over the top.Yes he has scored a few goals for us(mostly tap ins)but i wouldn’t say he is a great finisher.
      .Being a s/t holder i have had the luxury of seeing him over the full ninety minutes and my biggest disappointment with him is his work rate,strolling around sometimes as if he is playing in a friendly.
      Everyone will have their different opinions on him and i don’t think we will sell him but for me if a good offer came in i would let him go.
