Ghana's No. 1

Swansea manager Steve Cooper lavish praises on Andre Ayew after Millwall victory

Published on: 13 April 2021

Swansea City manager Steve Cooper has showered praises on Ghana forward Andre Ayew after spearheading victory at Millwall.

The Ghana captain netted his 15th goal of the campaign as the Swans beat Millwall 3-0 at the Den to revive their promotion chances.

Swansea slipped from promotion places after four defeats on a row, but Ayew broke the jinx when he scored a beauty in the first half to put his side ahead.

“I thought we were a real attacking threat all game.

“I think Wayne (Routledge), coming into the team, was excellent, Andre has scored at a brilliant time, just before half-time, and he was a real nuisance for the Millwall defenders.

“He was taking up areas where he was perhaps not getting the ball, but he was dragging people out of areas to exploit spaces elsewhere.

Cooper also lauded Ayew's strike partner Jamal Lowe, who added scored a second half brace to seal the emphatic victory.

“But Jamal, brilliant, two excellent goals. I haven’t seen his chance back, but I could see he was in an excellent position in the first half and it’s not affected him and he then scores two," Cooper continued.

“To have a character like that is a sign of a really good player.

“Everybody contributed – you look at the back four, who were a real strong unit defensively, Freddie (Woodman) made an important save and his distribution was good.”

Swansea City will host Sheffield Wednesday tonight as the fight for promotion continues.
