Team player: I am not selfish! – Jordan Ayew

FC Lorient and Ghana forward Jordan Ayew has defended his style of play and refuted claims that he is a selfish player.

The 23-year old has often been at the receiving end of criticism from fans and sections of the media for being too individualistic.

In an interview with L’Equipe concerning Lorient’s season, Jordan disagreed with these claims and displayed confidence in the way he plays the game.

“My stats speak for themselves,” he commented, before adding: “There are those who say they want to score ten goals in a season, but I have no personal goal.”

“It shows that I am not selfish. I’ve always been a team player and my way of seeing football is the best. I’m not always going to score! I’m not Real or Barça.”

“In life, if you have a good heart, you will always be rewarded. And as I’ve had a good heart since childhood, I know I will be rewarded sooner or later,” he added.

“I do not pay attention to all these crap journalists who say that a player has not scored for maybe 500 minutes. The most important thing is that my family and my team go well.”

Lorient come face-to-face with second-placed Paris St. Germain tonight in the Ligue 1, as they continue their bid to beat the relegation drop.
