Tanko: Criticism of Jordan Unfair

Ex-Ghana International, who also doubles as the assistant coach of Cameroon, Ibrahim Tanko says Jordan Ayew has not been treated fairly by Ghanaians.

According to the former national star, Jordan is not yet a finished product and will need enough time to excel in his chosen career.

Jordan Ayew has been maligned and criticized for his shambolic performance for Ghana in the on-going 30th edition of the African Cup of Nations.

Though his elder brother, Dede Ayew, jumps to his defence, the latest to do so is Cameroon Assistant coach, Ibrahim Tanko.

“The young guy is doing well and I don’t see why people should talk negatively about him.”
“We  need to give people the chance to show what they have, rather than bringing people down always.”

“What will the young guy do if he hears all of these negative reportage, I think we have to encourage people even if they are not doing well”, Ibrahim Tanko told sportscrusader.com.

It’s still unclear if Black Stars Coach Avram Grant will succumb to pressure from Ghanaians to bench Jordan Ayew ahead of their crucial encounter against Guinea on Sunday in Malabo.
