Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has praised Jordan Ayew’s work in the team this season, but he also says that the Ghanaian International must get started scoring goals.
According to Vieira, the attacker needs to score goals immediately so that he can be confident to help his amazing work ethic.
“The only thing Jordan is missing at the moment is the goal to give him the confidence he needs. Outside of that his work ethic for the team is fantastic. When you’re making the squad you don’t just look at the goals, you look at the work ethic, the sacrifice they’re making,” Patrick Vieira told the club’s website.
“I’m happy with the way Jordan’s working at the moment, but he needs to score those goals. The way he’s working for the team, he deserves to score goals,” he added.
Jordan, who was the club’s top goalscorer last season, has had 11 caps this season and has only provided one assist with no goals to his name.
The forward is expected to be part of Palace against his old team Aston Villa in the English Premier League.
