Ayew brothers shine for clubs

GHANAIAN forward Andre Ayew scored in Swansea City in their home defeat to Stoke City in the English Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The Swans were ahead inside a minute when Andre Ayew tapped home a rebound.

Former Swan Sam Clucas levelled for the Potters midway through the first half, firing home after Freddie Woodman parried Joe Allen’s effort.

He enjoyed the entire duration of the match.

Ayew has scored four goals with three assists in his 10 appearances for Swansea City this season.

In another development, the younger of the Ayew brothers – Jordan – fetched a late winner scored his third goal of the season this evening against West Ham United, but, were it not for a decision by VAR, he may not have been celebrating at all.

Late in the game, the Ghanaian striker found the back of the net only for the refereeing team to discount it for offside. After a lengthy wait, however, VAR adjudged Ayew and his teammates to have in fact been onside and so the goal stood.

Speaking post-match, Ayew reflected on the decision, saying that he felt he was onside and was told by the linesman that it was Martin Kelly they felt was not.

“Sometimes you need a bit of luck and I think today we deserved three points,” Ayew said. “It was a tight game but we’re lucky and we’ll take it.

“Luckily, it was a goal and we’ll take it. Usually when you wait that long it means no goal so it’s positive!

“I’m buzzing. I’m enjoying myself. The most important thing is the team and the team have made things easy for me to settle in. Things are going well for all of us so it’s positive.”

Turning his attention to the rest of the match, Ayew again expressed his relief at Palace taking three points, saying: “They’re a difficult team to play against but the most important thing is to keep going, we never give up.

“Keep on fighting and sometimes you are lucky. Today I think we were lucky because West Ham played a good game as well. It was a 50/50 game and today it went our way. We’re happy and we thank God for that.” – Kickgh.com
