“Goal drought didn’t disturb me”- Andre Ayew

Ghana skipper Andre Ayew has said that his goal-scoring drought didn’t have a toll on him.

Ayew went six (6) games without a goal in the English Championship, but he finally ended it over the weekend when he scored for Swansea City against Norwich.

Dede scored the first of Swansea’s two goals to help them secure a two-nil victory and move up to third on the league table.

The 31-year-old’s goal against Norwich was his ninth goal of the season in 26 appearances.about:blank

Speaking after the game, Andre Ayew said that he did not lose sleep over his barren run.

He explained that though he was not hitting the back of the net, he was contributing in various ways to help Swansea win matches.

“As someone who plays upfront, it is important to get goals for the team but it (the dry spell) was not something that disturbed me much. I was playing well and I was making the team score goals in different ways with my movements etc.

“Of course, I always want to score and that is for sure but I think what is important is the team and what I can do to make the team get more goals. It can be through my movements, assists for my team mates. That is what is important.

“I am happy to get the goal though but what is important is the team and, in that spell, we showed that we could not rely on a few players for goals. Everyone had to chip in with goals and we are solid at the moment.”

This news will delight Black Stars coach CK Akonnor who has Andre Ayew as the highest scoring player for the team since he took over.

The skipper has bagged two goals and was the difference-maker when Ghana played South Africa and Sao Tome in the first legs of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
