Ghana forward, Jordan Ayew says the reason behind his poor goalscoring form at Crystal Palace is that playing for the Black Stars is not the same as club side.
The 27-year-old has failed to find the back of the net in the English Premier League for the Eagles since joining the club on loan from Swansea City in the summer.
However, Jordan brace for Ghana in their 2-0 win against Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier last Sunday.
“National team and club football is not the same,” he told Joy FM.
“Ghana is a big country with wonderful players. Crystal Palace is a very good team but it is a team where I am new and it is not easy to adjust to a new team.
“The most important thing is that I keep working hard to adjust. I am going to work extra hard and the most important thing is that things will change, I am sure about that.
“I know that I will get rewarded. My career has not been easy but I always keep on working hard and have belief in my qualities so I don’t have any problems.”
Ayew will hope to feature for Palace when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
