Swansea City defender Marc Guehi was surprised to be named Man of the Match in their victory over Barnsley in the first leg of the semifinal of the Premier League promotion play-offs.
Andre Ayew netted the winner on Monday night at Oakwell after another swashbuckling performance from the Ghana skipper.
But Guehi who was on top form received the award for the best player on the night.
He humbly reacted to his accolade, insisting he thought Ayew was the Man of the match.
🗣"I thought it was Andre Ayew by the way." 🤣

Ayew propelled Swansea City to a famous win over Barnsley with his wonderful strike on the 39th minute of the game.
After receiving a fine pass from Kyle Naughton, Ayew turned on to his left foot just inside the penalty area and curls a brilliant shot into the far corner.
The former West Ham United attacker saw out full throttle of action.
Ayew is currently sitting at the top of Swansea City scorers chart with 17 goals in 44 matches.
He also has 4 assists to his credit this term.
