Andre Ayew insists Ghana striker Jordan Ayew is not getting the needed attention

Published on: 19 September 2019

Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew says Jordan Ayew, has not received the needed recognition he deserves from his contribution to the game.

The Crystal Palace attacker became one of the most criticized players in the national team.

The 27-year-old has also been described as the worst buy for Aston Villa before joining the Eagles permanently from Swansea City.

However, Jordan is picking up form gradually having contributed two goals already in the season with an assist.

But the Swansea City winger believes that his junior brother is an unsung hero who is not duly recognised for the hard work he puts in his work but was hopeful people would begin to notice his effort.

“He (his brother Jordan) is someone who works hard and he's never got the recognition he deserves and I think now, bit by bit, people are starting to recognise his work”, he told BBC in an interview.

Andre also described his brother as a very good footballer who was potent in front of goal and believes he has made his mark since joining the premiership and hope to join Jordan in the premiership soon.

“He's a player who plays very good football, who works hard, who can score goals. I think he's done really well since he's been in England and I hope he keeps on going like that because he has the quality to do much better and hopefully very soon we'll meet again in the Premier League”, he said.
