Jordan Ayew has explained that he was delighted to be back in action for Swansea City following a month on the sidelines.
The Ghanaian served a three-match ban following his sending off against Huddersfield in March but returned in style by scoring Swansea’s equaliser in a 1-1 draw at home to Everton this past weekend.
It was Ayew’s seventh Premier League goal this season and helped the Welsh team remain above the relegation zone – though they still have some work ahead of them if they are to avoid dropping down a division.
“I was itching to get back because with the three games plus the international break, it has been a month since I have played,” Ayew said after the match at Liberty Stadium.
“It is good to be back, but the most important thing is that we keep going forward and continue to get the points.
“I will keep working hard. I never give up. I will fight to the end and we will continue to do our best for Swansea to stay in the league.”
Ayew’s Swansea face a tough test in their next match as they face Manchester City away on Sunday, April 22.
