Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has assured Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew of helping him get back to his previous form.
Jordan has gone 36 games without scoring for Crystal Palace which is some 2,364 minutes of football.
The 30-year-old is suffering from a lack of confidence in front of goal after missing a chance to register a potential match-winner in Palace’s draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night in the English Premier League.
Patrick Vieira however says Jordan will get to his scoring best soon.
“I think what is really important for Jordan is that, as a manager and as a football club, we believe in his ability,” Vieira said.
“He needs to know that we have the total belief that he can score goals and he has got the support of everyone at the football club.
“There is no question or doubt about what he is capable of achieving, saying that it is also one part of the game he needs to improve.
“Because we want him to score more goals and how can we do that, we have to continue to work on his confidence in training and put him in a situation that he will likely face in real game time.
“With the support we will give him he will score goals; I don’t have any doubts. I just want him to improve and be better than he was every single day
“As a player it is important for him to keep working hard and keep going the way he has been doing so far for himself and his team-mates.
