Jordan Ayew Welcomes Being Substituted In Matches Despite Impressive Form
Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew has stressed that he welcomes being substituted in matches notwithstanding his impressive form for English Premier League side Crystal Palace.
The Black Stars attacker completed his permanent move to the Eagles from Swansea City this summer following a good display for his national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
He has continued from where he left off in Egypt and has emerged as a standout player for Palace in the ongoing EPL season, finding the back of the net in all of his last two games.
Speaking in a post-match interview after scoring the winning goal for Crystal Palace as they beat Aston Villa on Saturday, Ayew affirmed that he is open to making way for other players whenever manager Roy Hodgson decides to sub him.
"We are a team as a squad, and obviously the manager has chosen a shape that is a 4-3-3 where there is only one striker.
“If I had to come off, I had to come off. The manager knows what is best for the team. I do not have any problem with that”, the in-form striker said.
Ayew, 27, is expected to be key for Palace for the rest of the season especially after being handed the number 1 striker role.
