“The older players are a real credit to themselves and the football club.
“Andre’s been really great, hasn’t he. You’ve all seen him on the pitch and the contribution he’s made and the energy levels that he gives. He leads by example when he’s playing and when he’s training, he said.
“He’s a very good person and a really good professional. It’s been brilliant to see how a top player operates, so I can’t speak highly enough of him," he added.
The Swans will face Brentford in the EFL playoff semifinal, while Fulham will take on Cardiff in the other semifinal.
