Franck Passi says that Marseille forward Jordan Ayew needs to change his attitude to make his father Abede Pele proud.

Marseille assistant coach Franck Passi has advised forward Jordan Ayew to improve his temperament.

The 21-year-old clashed with David Beckham during his side's Coupe de France game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

The incident followed Ayew's dismissal against Evian TG last month in which he was booked twice inside two minutes of coming on.

"I know his dad, Abedi [Pele], well," ESPNSoccernet quotes Passi as saying. "I imagine that his father isn't proud of what he's seeing.

"Sometimes, he's a little irritable on the pitch. He was coming back from suspension. He wanted to show what he can do and get things going, and that translates into a little bit of anger.

"He's a young player, but he's going to have to mature quickly so that he can show his qualities as a footballer."

Ayew has been at Marseille since 2006.
