Marseille unwilling to release Jordan for U-20

first_imgJordan Ayew is in danger of missing the African Under-20 tournament after he was told by Olympique Marseille he will not be released for the event.The tournament due to begin in Libya on March 18 in Libya could itself be affected by the recent unrest in North Africa but Jordan could miss out regardless of where and when it is played.KickOffGhana.com understands the player has been told by Marseille coach Didier Deschamps that he will not release him to play a part in Ghana’s African title defense.He played only one qualifying game for Ghana because the club had been unwilling to release him for those games too.Clubs are not obliged to release their players for the U-20 championships and with injuries to the squad, Deschamps wants his striker around.Ayew turned down the chance for a loan move in January and has been used frequently since then as a substitute. His brother Andre captained Ghana to both the African and world titles while on loan from Marseille to Arles-Avignon and Jordan is determined that he can work out a deal with the cub so he can play in the tournament.Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more
