Andre Ayew Admits Swansea is Going Through Difficult Times


Andre Ayew has expressed his disappointment at Swansea’s defeat at the death at Manchester City on Saturday.

The Swans conceded late in stoppage time from a Yaya Toure strike to succumb 2-1 which saw them slip to 16th on the table.

This was after substitute Bafetembi Gomis had cancelled out Wilfred Bony’s goal on the 90th minute mark.

Swansea are now without win in five matches coupled with the dismissal of manager Gary Monk last week.

Ayew, who was deployed as the lone striker at the Etihad by caretaker boss Alan Curtis but later replaced after 83 minutes, admitted times are rough for the South Wales side.

“We are very disappointed because we could have gone home with at least a point,” the Ghana international said.

“We showed character and a lot of good things, but at the moment the most important thing is the points.

“But hopefully we can take the good things that we did today and use it for the next few games in front of us.

“It’s been a difficult week with Garry’s departure, because he had been at the club for so long and done so much for the club.

“We’re trying to move forward and get the results we need, and hopefully we can get out of this situation.

“City had more possession, but we had clear chances. We showed we can be very dangerous, but what is important is that you take your chances.”

Ayew is Swansea’s top scorer with six goals from 16 league appearances.
