Andre Ayew Pele, the 2015 Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Sports Personality and Best Footballer of the year ended his first season in the tough English Top Flight League with 12 glorious goals for Swansea City and was named Barclays Player of the Month as well as Best Player of Swansea in 2016.
The Online Sports Journalists who have over the years been covering and reporting on the exploits of Ayew and other popular African footballers said he has proven to be a grand ambassador and personality with character and determined to succeed.
Sammy Heywood Okine aka General One, Executive Director of OSJU said the son of the African Soccer Maestro has more to give to the world of football after a wonderful time in France at Marseille.
“I remember when he went to Swansea, many sport writers said he will find it tough, but after scoring against Chelsea, Man U, Man C, Liverpool and other big clubs, they are now ashamed and hailing him. I know he will shine again” he said.
He was optimistic that Ayew will attract more offers after a season at West Ham.
Andre Ayew led Ghana to victories to qualify for the next African cup of nations in Gabon and every football fan is looking at Ghana and Ayew after they painfully lost on penalties to neighbours Cote d’Ivoire.
He was voted SWAG Best Sports Personality and Footballer of the Year 2015, and many connoisseurs of the game believe he will retain the title in 2016.
Meanwhile, Ayew has told the media in Ghana that winning with his team makes him happy the most than individual awards, and he cherishes when he led Ghana U20 to win the World Youth Championship in Egypt as well as winning the French with Olympic Marseille.
Meanwhile, Women In Sports Association (WISA) have also saluted the new West Ham star. Gloria Commodore, head of the NGO to support women involved in sports said Ayew has put Ghana on the map and he deserves to be praised.
