Jordan Ayew sees red in Marseille stalemate

Ghana attacker Jordan Ayew got sent off just two minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute in Marseille’s 1-1 draw at Evian Thonon Gaillard in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The 21-year-old was introduced by Marseille boss Elie Baup in the 73rd minute as a replacement for Mathieu Valbuena but the young forward got his marching orders on the 75th minute mark.

Jordan was cautioned a minute after coming on for a silly tackle and received another booking a minute later leading to his sending off.

Marseille’s Kassim Abdallah had earlier been sent off in the 58th minute.

His elder brother Andre Ayew missed the game due to injury.
