Andre Ayew hailed after Swansea League Cup brace


The 29-year-old’s outstanding display against Northampton Town has not gone unnoticed by his club manager

Swansea City manager Steve Cooper has lauded the performance of Ghana captain Andre Ayew after the attacker netted a sensational double to ensure a dramatic comeback win over Northampton Town in the English League Cup on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old stole the show after coming on as a 62nd-minute substitute, when his 80th-minute header cancelled Matthew Warburton’s opener for Northampton before heading home another goal to seal the win after George Byers struck to make it 2-1.

On loan at Turkish fold Fenerbahce last season, Ayew netted only two days after rejoining Swansea training following an extended break due to his participation at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
