Marseille talent Andre Ayew has revealed his determination to stop the dominance of Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1 when his side faces off against the French champions this weekend.
The match is known as the Ligue 1 Clasico in France, as it is comparable to the Spanish version of the same name between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Ghana international has been a major player for Marseille, with speculation around his future in recent months following reported interest from numerous clubs in England, Italy and Spain, but despite the transfer possibilities in the near future, the player is focused on Sunday’s crunch encounter.
The 25-year-old is eagerly awaiting PSG’s visit to the Stade Velodrome, and believes that his team are capable of upsetting the Parisian side, despite the clear dominance that they have displayed in the past few seasons.
“PSG’s domination is frustrating. It is hard to accept that and now is time to stop their winning streak because the Ligue 1 Clasico is crucial in the title race. We also have an ego to protect as well as our supporters, who are even more important,” he told l’Equipe.
“This is not our match. It is the match for the city of Marseille and the entire region. We have to be at our best in order not to disappoint our people. It is more important to our supporters than us as players,” Ayew added.
