Joint celebration: Dede and Jordan Ayew win player of the month awards

Ghana duo Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew have been voted as Olympique Marseille’s and Sochaux’s best player for the month of May respectively.

The Ayew brothers have been the most outstanding players for their French outfits in the month in question.

Andre was voted ahead of the likes of Benoit Cheyrou, Florian Thauvin, Steve Mandanda, Mathieu Valbuena and Senegalese centre-back Souleyman Diawara, who also put up fantastic performances for the Stade Velodrome outfit.

Ayew, who won the Marseille’s player of the month of April, was phenomenal in May as well, scoring one goal against Guingamp at the Stade Vélodrome last weekend.

His younger brother, Jordan, was the most popular figure in the Sochaux set up, selling more personalised shirts than any other player in the club.

The 22-year-old was also impressive for the relegated French side, scoring his six goals since crossing over from Olympique Marseille on loan during the January transfer window.

But the month of May was the greatest period for the forward’s career in the just ended season.

Jordan netted two goals against Rennes and Nice and was voted ahead of Zambian defender Stopilla Sunzu and French right winger Sebastien Corchia.

He will rejoin his elder brother, Andre, at Marseille next season after completing his four-month loan deal at Sochaux.
