Signing For Swansea Was One Of The Best Decisions Of My Career – Andre Ayew Reveals
Black Stars captain Andre Ayew insists one of the best decisions taken in his career was signing for Welsh club Swansea City.
The Ghana skipper spent two successful stints with the club and is seen as a cult hero at the club, especially with his contributions in the last two seasons.
Last season, Ayew netted 17 goals and led the club to the finals of the English Premier League promotion play-offs, but disappointingly lost to Brentford at Wembley.
The 31-year-old has lovely memories of the club, but insists there was always going to be a time that he had to leave.
“Honestly, I think it [signing for Swansea] is one of the best decisions I took in my career. It’s a place that I really felt at home. I felt that the people were always there for me on the pitch and off it,” he told Joy FM.
“The club, from the owners to the groundsmen, I knew everyone so I was at home. Being there gave me that feeling that I am free to express myself on the pitch or do things outside the pitch too. I had the confidence from everyone, that belief that you have to make something happen,” he added.
“The decision to leave one day was going to come, sooner or later. I wanted to get back to the Premier League to continue with the club. That was my first aim after I didn’t know what was going to happen. We all knew that if we didn’t go up, I would have to leave the club.”
