Ghana’s Andre Ayew has been named vice-captain for Championship side Swansea City.
The Black Stars skipper was appointed to deputize Matt Grimes at the English Club.
Known for his leadership qualities, the 29-year-old has exerted traits of a trailblazer on the field of play.
He has been recognized with a new role for his hard work and dedication to the Club.
“Andre is a senior figure and a very positive influence around the group,” said Swansea City manager Steve Cooper.
“We are very lucky, we have players like Wayne Routledge, Nathan Dyer and Kyle Naughton too.
“We know there is a bit of a status to being captain or vice-captain, but we do have senior figures in the squad.
“Andre has got the attributes to lead, and he does it well through good and bad moments and long may that continue.
“It’s good for Matt as well to have players like Andre, Wayne and Nathan around him.
“Matt has thrived in the role, there is no doubt about it. But I know he is open-minded enough to seek advice and I know those boys will give it to him in a constructive and helpful manner.
“Andre is a good role model and leader, I think there is a good culture here everyone helps each other but pushes each other. That’s a good thing.”
The midfielder who has already scored three times for Swansea City this season was named Ghana’s captain prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
