Andre Ayew emerges as Ghana’s top scorer in Ligue 1 this season

The 34-year-old netted his fifth league goal of the season at the weekend as Le Havre recorded an important win over Racing Strasbourg.

Ayew’s goal came in the 96th minute and helped Le Havre to a 3-1 victory, while moving them three points above the relegation zone.

This makes him the highest-scoring Ghanaian player in the French topflight this season, ahead of Ernest Nuamah, who has three goals.

The former Olympique Marseille and Swansea City forward joined Le Havre in November as a free agent and has since become a key player.

He has featured in 18 matches in all competitions while contributing six goals (five in the league and one in the French Cup).

In March, Ayew crossed the 50-goal mark in Ligue 1 after finding the back of the net against Clermont Foot.

Meanwhile, Ayew recently stated that the Black Stars cannot hide behind their poor results despite calling for calm from the public.

"I think we need to stay calm. A lot of things have happened. There's not much to be said at the moment,” he told Nana Ama Agyemang on Chasing Gold with Nana Aba.

"I have been in the team for a very long time so we need to stay calm, learn from what went right and what went wrong, keep working hard to make our nation proud because it is something very special.”

Ayew is on a short-term contract at Le Havre but it remains to be seen if it will be extended.
