Crystal Palace Manager, Patrick Vieira is full of praise for Ghana striker, Jordan Ayew following his recent form in the English Premier League.
According to him the Ghanaian international contributes enormously to the club despite not scoring goals due to his work ethics for the greater good for the club.
“When you’re looking at the front three, the work without the ball, Jordan [Ayew] coming inside to stop the midfielders getting on the ball, it was a really good team effort,” Vieira told the club’s official website.
“This is one of the reasons why they didn’t create many chances.”
Vieira further admitted his team did not fight to the last minute after leading until the additional minutes of the game.
“The last kick is in our hands and we made that mistake. The organisation we had in midfield didn’t allow us to win that second ball. It’s a process of us learning that, until the last whistle, anything can happen – especially when you’re 1-0 up,” Vieira continued.
“We are improving, we are getting stronger. Our collective game, the way we played with and without the ball, is really united. I think the players are really aware of what they have to do on the field.”
The Eagles drew 1-1 at home on Monday evening against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Selhurst Park.
Ayew is yet to score his first goal for the Blue and Reds this season after six matches in the 2021-22 Premier League.
