Ghana Striker Jordan Ayew Opens Up On New Role At Crystal Palace Under Patrick Vieira

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has disclosed that he is playing a different role under new manager Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace.

The 29-year-old netted his first goal in pre-season since the arrival of Patrick Vieira, as the Eagles defeated Reading 3-1 on Saturday.

“It’s different, because the gaffer came in and had a different style of play and wanted me to have more control of the game, and asked to create a lot of chances,” he told the club’s official website.

The former Swansea City man insists he is made to stay upfield to reserve a lot of energy.

“He’s trying to keep me high up the pitch, so I have lots of energy. Obviously me, Wilf [Zaha], Christian [Benteke], JP [Mateta] and [Jeff] Schluppy are just trying to put in the best conditions for us to make the difference up front.
