Ghana international Andre Ayew failed to earn a spot in the PFA Championship Team of the Year despite clinching four famous awards at Swansea City’s end of season event.
The Swansea City vice-captain had a scintillating campaign last season, scoring18 goals in all competitions and also providing seven assists to help Steve Cooper’s side reach the Championship play-offs.
However, his statistics alone have not been enough to get him into the PFA Championship Team of the Year.
Former Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze, Brice Samba and Said Benrahma are the only Africans who made the PFA Championship Team of the Year dominated by Leeds United.
Eze was named in a three-man midfield that parades Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips and West Bromwich Albion’s Romaine Sawyers.
Championship Team of the Year: Brice Samba (Nottingham Forest), Luke Ayling, Ben White, Liam Cooper (all Leeds), Joe Bryan (Fulham), Eberechi Eze (QPR), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Romaine Sawyers (West Brom), Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Ollie Watkins, Said Benrahma (both Brentford).

Ayew was named Swansea City Supporters’ Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season in the club’s end-of-season awards for the 2019-20 campaign.
The 30-year-old came out on top in Away Player of the Season prize and also won the club’s Top Goalscorer award, and the Away Player of the Season prize.
He is currently being courted by Premier League newcomers Leeds United.
