Jordan Ayew was caught using his elbow to attack an opponent
Ghana striker Jordan Ayew was subjected to shocking insults on Twitter as the Aston Villa attacker was sent off in disgrace as Aston Villa during Tuesday night’s 2-0 defeat at West Ham.
Villa fans attacked the Ghanaian as a ‘wanker’, ‘cunt’, ‘clown’ and ‘twat’ after the dismissal of Ayew was directly linked to their defeat.
Ayew left his struggling side in the lurch when he was dismissed for a vicious elbow into the face of Aaron Cresswell after just 17 minutes.
It was utterly mystifying when Ayew, who was jostling for position with Cresswell from a throw-in deep in West Ham territory, swung out his elbow into the defender’s face and left him sprawled on the floor.
Referee Jonathan Moss produced a straight red card and Ayew trudged off to leave his team-mates facing a long evening a man down.
This sparked anger among Aston Villa fans who thought the Ghanaian had led his side down as they were then dominating the exchanges with the score goalless.
Below are some of the insults on the Ghana striker after his red card in Tuesday’s match.
@AVFCBlog Jordan Ayew should be fined a months pay, what an absolute cunt he was tonight. No thought for the team, it’s all about him, twat

Ayew has just relegated us. Any slight hope we had has just been erased. And I bet he’ll be the first to jump ship as well. #avfc

What a disgrace Ayew is. He needs a hefty fine and a kick up the ar*e. Wouldn’t surprise me to see Garde walk soon.#WHUFCvAVFC — Max Harvey (@M4XWELL1) February 2, 2016

Dock Ayew two weeks wages for a costly lack of discipline and on the subject of elbows, give Richardson the Spanish Archer. Just go. #avfc — Jonny Gould (@jonnygould) February 2, 2016

Ayew has been our most consistent attacking threat (at times our only threat). Made a poor decision today. Not gonna slate him for it. — Chet Manley (@AstonVillanUSA) February 2, 2016

Just seen that Ayew red card. Bloody idiot. Would’ve been a completely different game if he hadn’t been such a tool. Deserves the ban. #AVFC — Marc Flannery (@himynameismarc) February 2, 2016
If Villa showed half the effort they had tonight this season they’d of been alright! Ayew absolute heads gone!
