Ghanaian Fans Lash Out At Jordan

jordan ayewGHANAIAN soccer fans have tagged Jordan Ayew as a selfish and a self-centered player rather than team players.

Jordan came on as a 51st minute substitute for Kevin Prince Boateng and 15 minutes later he was presented with a glorious opportunity down the wing from his own half but with Gyan free in the middle alone and waiting patiently to receive a cross from him, decided to cut inside himself and hit a feebly shot at goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in post for the Germans.

Television replay showed how ready Asaomah Gyan was in the penalty area all alone for the ball which never came. Gyan expressed his surprise at Jordan’s selfishness by shaking his head in dismay.

That selfish act by Jordan did not sit well with thousands of Ghanaian fans who stayed glued to their television set to watch the Black Stars play.

Fans that thronged the popular EPO’s Spot in Osu to watch the game pour out invective on the 22years old forward for his act. Majority of the fans booed the striker any time he was captured on the screens during the game.

According to some he was not fit to be in the national team while others blame his action on his immature nature

Others who were not the least enthused with his introduction questioned why coach Kwesi Appiah kept the likes of Abdul Majeed Waris on the bench for a players who has added nothing to the teams play in the teams two matches.

Others argued there he denied Ghana a deserved win in the game on Saturday

“Jordan is the most selfish player I have ever seen in my life, I do not know what Coach Kwesi Appiah sees in him \that I do not see that makes him to select him. He has let the whole country down and he should not be selected for the next game at all,” Ebenezer Anangfio, a football fan told this paper.

A female fan Mabel Osae Apenteng who questioned his inclusion in the game said “Jordan is not cut for the international stage yet, magical moments in games does not come twice, he had the biggest opportunity to help us win the game but he allowed personal glory to override team glory and a win for the country and should refrain from such a behavior in the near future.”

However not all fans believed he did the wrong thing, “ If he had crossed the ball at that time the assistant referee would have raised his flag for offside, it’s unfortunate he could not score but his decision was not bad at all,” Nii Ashietey Okoe stated.
