Jordan Ayew has insisted that there is no rivalry between him and Andre Ayew, having once again followed in his older brother’s footsteps.
The younger Ayew made his Swansea City debut on Sunday in a 2-0 win over Leicester City in the Premier League, following his January move from Aston Villa.
Jordan has followed in Ayew’s footsteps for most of his career: first at Olympique Marseille, then the Ghana national team, and now to the Swans.
He is hoping to have a major impact at the Liberty Stadium, just as Andre - who is currently on the books of West Ham United - did last season.
“That has always been the history,” Jordan is quoted by the Daily Mail in regards to tracing the same path as his sibling.
“Andre has been fantastic. He was 20 at Marseille, and then I went there.
“I had good times, but then had some difficulties and had to move to two different clubs, Sochaux and Lorient, to end up finding myself at Villa in 2015.
“I spoke to my brother about coming to Swansea because he is like my lawyer. Our parents did so well to educate us in the best possible way and to keep us united.
“Our background is so strong that no one can break us. There is no rivalry between us, but maybe I am more ambitious than him!”
