Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has praised Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew for his amazing dedication to his job after scoring to bring the Eagles one point at 2-2 with Southampton.
Ayew scored the first time in his 43 games to secure one point for the Saints in an exciting match at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.
“He’s massively important… The message has been clear with Jordan: I want him to keep playing the way he’s played lately. His work ethic is what we need and want, and he got rewarded by what he’s doing on the field. I’m really happy he scored that goal,” said Vieira in a post match interview.
“I think when he had his opportunity, the focus was on what he’s doing for the team. He’s sacrificing himself for the team, working hard for the team. This is what we need and want. Goals will come.
“What was important for us was we how can we create chances to allow him to be in a good opportunity to score. He was unlucky against Manchester United and in other games, but today he was in the right place, took his chance and scored. This is really good for him and the team, and hopefully there is more to come.”
