Ghanaian international, Andre Ayew, has revealed he has no regrets over his transfer from West Ham to Swansea City on transfer deadline day.
Ayew, who has been out of favour with the Hammers since joining in a record £20.5 from Swansea, said he considers himself as one of the most effective players during his time with club and is therefore not bothered about faultfinders that critiqued his performance.
The attacker completed a reported £18 m club record switch to Swansea City after a total of 43 league appearances for David Moyes’s outfit, involving 25 starts and nine goals but had to depart to join his brother, Jordan Ayew to find more playing time to guarantee him a place in the national team after he was dropped by Coach Kwasi Appiah.
“As soon as I moved to West Ham, I got injured for a long time and then I went to the African Cup of Nations, But when I look at my statistics and my time from August until now, I think I am one of the most efficient players, if not the most efficient. Ayew explains to Swans TV.
He added that “I am not one of the players who played the most games, but I have no regrets. Things could have been much better if I had not got the injuries or if I’d played more games. But when I look at my statistics and those of others who play in my position and had more game-time than me, I don’t have to envy anyone.”
Back at Swansea, same club he left for West Ham, he makes a reunion with younger brother Jordan, with whom he played at Marseille in France. We have played together at Marseille and with the national team, now it’s happening again. I am happy that Jordan is in the squad here – he has progressed a lot and he is playing really well. ” the Ghana international said.
“Jordan has had a run of games and his confidence level is really high. That’s important in football. He has to keep things going and now I am also here, we hope we can do a great job for the team”. Ayew said.
During his first spell in 2015-16, Ayew netted 12 goals in 34 league outings, finishing the season as Swansea’s top scorer.
