Ghanaian international striker Jordan Ayew has revealed how he struggled at the beginning of his premier league career.
Jordan made his debut for Aston Villa in 2015 coming on as a substitute against Bournemouth, after joining from French Ligue 1 side Lorient for £15m.
After a slow start to the league, Jordan made a good name for himself finishing as the clubs top scorer with seven goals although unfortunately, his goals could not save the Villans from relegation.
His good form for Villa earned him a transfer back to the premier league to Swansea City, which coincidentally is the former club of his brother Andre.
Jordan described his debut in the Premier League and discloses how he had a hard time coming to terms with the fast paced nature of English football.
“I made my debut against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and I must admit I struggled with the intensity. The intensity was incredible and within thirty minutes, I looked at Gana [Idrissa Gueye], and I said to myself I’m dead. I needed time to adapt to the Premier League and I think with time I adapted very well,” he said.
Jordan has provided two assists in his six starts at his new club Swansea and will be hoping to contribute more to save the Swans from relegation this season.
