Ayew brothers played in the 2-0 loss to PSG

Andre and Jordan Ayew were again unable to help Marseille as they slumped to a second successive defeat to PSG on Wednesday.
The Ghana duo played a part in the French Cup game at the Parc de Princes but ended up on the losing side.
A brace from Zlatan Ibrahimovic ensured Les Phoceens’ elimination from this season’s Coupe de France.

They alongside the Marseille team will now have to pick themselves up from the two crashing defeats to get their league campaign back on track this weekend against strugglers Troyes.

Joey Barton on the other hand is a world class troll from England with substantial talent, but...
