‘I joined Swansea City back then because of money’ – Ghana captain Andre Ayew


Andre Ayew, the captain of the Black Stars, recently spoke about his transfer to Swansea in 2015, expressing satisfaction with his decision and sharing his reflections on the journey.

Ayew’s transition to the Premier League with Swansea was a remarkable one, marked by immediate success. He made a memorable debut by scoring a goal against Chelsea, one of the top clubs in England. Additionally, he received the prestigious Premier League’s Player of the Month award in his very first month with Swansea, showcasing his talent and impact on the field.

After his successful stint with Swansea, Ayew made a significant move to West Ham United, transferring for a then-record fee of £20.5 million. Despite the change, Ayew has no regrets about his decision to join Swansea in 2015.

When discussing his choice to join Swansea, Ayew highlighted the unfamiliarity of the club in France and mentioned that although bigger clubs showed interest, their style of football didn’t align with his preferences. He emphasized the importance of having a crucial role to play in the team and acknowledged the influence of financial considerations in his decision-making process.

Ayew’s time at Swansea proved fruitful, as he quickly established himself as a key player and made a notable impact in the Premier League. His outstanding performances earned him recognition as the best player in the league for the month, validating his decision to join Swansea.

Now, eight years after his move to Swansea, Ayew finds himself playing for Le Havre in Ligue 1. Despite his departure from the Premier League, his contributions on the field have not gone unnoticed. Ayew’s exceptional performances have led to him being honored as the Player of the Month for February by his current club, Le Havre.

Reflecting on his journey from Swansea to Le Havre, Ayew’s success and recognition reaffirm the positive impact of his decision to join Swansea in 2015. His achievements in both the Premier League and Ligue 1 highlight his talent, dedication, and unwavering commitment to excellence in football.
