Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has sent a heartfelt message to retiring Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson after the final game of the season.
The English coach announced his retirement from football last week after 45 years in management.
His decision was met with several reactions including that of Ghanaian attacker Jordan Ayew, who credits him for a very good 2019/20 season, where Ayew scooped every top club award.
Ayew endured a difficult first season when he arrived in South London on loan from Swansea City, scoring just a goal in 20 English Premier League matches.
The manager kept faith in him awarding him a permanent contract and the ex-Marseille attacker repaid him with some excellent displays the following season.
His final season under Hodgson may have not gone the way he wanted but the Ghanaian has showed immense gratitude to the 74-year-old.
“Thank you for everything over the last few years Boss, especially for believing in me after a tough first season. You will be missed & I wish you the best for the future – You deserve it,” he wrote on his official Instagram handle.
Jordan Ayew netted once in 33 matches in the just ended campaign.
The Black Stars forward has been named in C.K Akonnor’s squad for the international friendlies next month against Morocco and Ivory Coast.
