Promotion with Swansea ‘would be among the top’ moments of Andre Ayew’s career

Andre Ayew says winning promotion to the Premier League at Swansea would match his Champions League and World Cup exploits.

Ayew was part of the Swansea side relegated from the top flight in 2018 and spent a year on loan at Turkish club Fenerbahce before returning to south Wales and becoming the talisman under Steve Cooper.

He has scored 17 goals as the club have reached the Sky Bet Championship play-offs for the second successive season, with Cooper’s side holding a slender 1-0 semi-final advantage over Barnsley going into Saturday’s home leg.

Asked how promotion would compare to scoring for Ghana at the World Cup finals and for Marseille in the Champions League, Ayew – who is called ‘The King’ by his Swansea teammates – said: “It would be among the tops.

“I have grown to love the club and the fans and it would be a big achievement because it would prove I can do it at any level.

Keep dreaming, ayew is in Qatar taking big money with a team. What’s promotion without money and what’s football without luxury and cash. He has to go make that cash for The family
