We have been linked with moves for Olympique de Marseille duo Andre Pierre Gignac and Andre Ayew this season (via the Metro), but it seems the two don’t get on at all – with Gignac allegedly calling his Ligue 1 teammate a “motherf***er”.
It’s unclear whether we are actually after either player, but any chance we had of securing both men’s signatures looks to have flown out the window after this latest revelation.
Get French Football reported the news, with the giant French forward lashing out at Andre Ayew as well as his brother Jordan.
He claimed he would be glad to see the back of that “motherf***er”, and insisted that all he and his brother ever did was moan.
André Pierre Gignac on André Ayew, per France Football: “A motherf***er, he should get lost. With his brother, all they did was moan.”

You don’t often see players speaking so openly about their hatred for their teammates, so this news suggests one – or both – of them are almost certainly on their way out of Marseille. It would seem impossible for the pair to continue to play together after such an outburst, so something surely has to give.
