Ghana coach Charles Kwablah Akonnor has praised striker Jordan Ayew for winning three top awards at Crystal Palace at the end of the season.
The Black Stars striker, who scored 9 goals in 39 games for the Eagles, was named Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season as well as winning the accolade for the best goal of the campaign.
“Jordan Ayew has really improved and as the Black Stars Coach I am very proud of him. Jordan’s progression has been a very good example especially for the young players” Akonnor said on Angel FM’s Floodlight Sports in Accra.
He secured 37% of the total votes from almost 6,000 supporters to beat Vicente Guaita (28.2%) and Gary Cahill (16.7%) to scoop the top most award.
This is the second time the former Marseille striker is winning the players’ player of the season and the player of the season award at a club, after previously doing same at Swansea City.
