Ludogorets forward Bernard Tekpetey has shown support for embattled Ghana striker Jordan Ayew.
The Crystal Palace striker has come in for harsh criticism from supporters over his goal-scoring drought of late.
He is suffering an unending goal drought, both for national and club.
Jordan hasn’t been a scorer in the Premier League for Crystal Palace in over 30 games during the English Premier League. For his country, he has last scored in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sao Tome in 2019. He was recently unable to score an opportunity to score in the Black Stars friendly against lower-tier team Soccer Intellectuals, which they won 8-0.
Bernard Tekpetey is hoping the Palace forward can regain his form and put the ball in the goal line in the match against Zimbabwe during the 2022 World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
Jordan [Ayew] is a good player. He’s a top player in Europe and Africa,” former Schalke 04 attacker Tekpetey, who played together with the former Swansea City man at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament, told Goal.
“Sometimes you play against a team, they hear the name and realise they have to pay attention to him.
“With this new coach, I hope Jordan can get his rhythm and play with his quality and come up with some goals to help the nation as well.”
The Black Stars are set to take on The Warriors in Cape Coast in the Group C match day three fixture on the weekend of Saturday, which will last for three days before traveling to Harare for the second match.
