Ghana forward Jordan Ayew is hopeful of converting his form for the Black Stars into strong performances for Crystal Palace.

The 27-year-old showed his class at national team level this past weekend when he scored both goals in Ghana’s 2-0 away win over Ethiopia in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Yet he has struggled for form with Premier League side Crystal Palace, receiving some harsh criticism from Eagles fans following his loan move from Swansea City.

"National team and club football is not the same,” Ayew is quoted by Joy FM.

"Ghana is a big country with wonderful players. Crystal Palace is a very good team but it is a team where I am new and it is not easy to adjust to a new team."

He added, “The most important thing is that I keep working hard to adjust. I am going to work extra hard and the most important thing is that things will change, I am sure about that.

"I know that I will get rewarded. My career has not been easy but I always keep on working hard and have belief in my qualities so I don't have any problems."

Ayew will hope to feature for Palace when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
