Ghana striker Jordan Ayew scooped three awards at Crystal Palace following an impressive campaign with the club in the 2019/2020 season.

The 28-year old bagged the Player of the Year Award, which is the topmost accolade at the club, the Players’ Player of the season, voted for by fellow teammates and the best goal of the season award.

Ayew pulled 37% of the total votes from almost 6,000 supporters to beat Vicente Guaita (28.2%) and Gary Cahill (16.7%).

“I had the desire to have a better season and things have gone so well. I’m just grateful,” Ayew told Crystal Palace TV.

“I want to thank everyone at the football club; I want to thank the fans especially, they’ve been massive for us this season, for me especially they’ve been massive. I’d like to thank all the people that supported me within the difficult moments that I had in my football career.

“When I have this type of award I just think of my family and obviously of the fans. And one man that’s been so influential in my football career: that’s [mentor and former Olympique de Marseille president] Pape Diouf. I lost him within the period of COVID and he passed away, I wish he was still here so I could present him this.”
