Rahim expects Jordan to shine at AFCON

Ghana International Rahim Ayew has backed his junior brother Jordan Ayew to shine in the upcoming African Cup of Nations Tournament in Equatorial Guinea.

Jordan is yet to live up to his huge potential after pundits branded him as the new talisman for the Black Stars during his early stints with the team.

The former Marseille striker has been able to put behind his shambolic and selfish performance for the Black Stars in Brazil by commanding a partnership mainly with Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan in the 2015 AFCON qualifiers.

Although Jordan is yet to live up to the billing, his senior brother and former Black Stars player says the 23 year old will be the shining star of the team in the campaign in Equatorial Guinea.

“He is still young but I think he has matured a little bit, he was criticized in Brazil but we all saw his performance in the qualifiers”. Rahim Ayew told Sportscrusader.com

“He was good and with enough playing time with the team and ahead of the AFCON he will be one of the key players that we can rely on”.
