Ghana’s Black Stars captain Andre Ayew’s Premier League dreams has been ended by Brentford FC on Saturday afternoon at Wembley Stadium.
The Ghanaian forward was full of excitement and confidence going into the Championship Playoffs final but could not help his side secure promotion into the top-flight following their defeat to the Bees.
The 31-year-old was on 17 goal before the game but failed to add to his tally as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Red and Whites who have qualified to compete in England’s top-flight football for the first time in 74 years.
Ten minutes after Kickoff, the Swans suffered a major setback as they they gave away a spot kick very early in the game which was converted by Championship top scorer, Ivan Toney.
On the 20th minute mark, Brentford got their second goal through a fine finish from Emiliano Marcondes to make it 2-0.
Ayew came close to reducing the deficit two minutes after the break but his tame headed effort could not trouble the Bees goalkeeper.
Six minutes after the hour mark, Swansea City AFC were reduced to 10-men after Jay Fulten fouled Mattias Jensen.
The Jack Army’s tried to fight back but could not find a way back into the game as the Red and Whites held onto their 2-0 first half lead to gain promotion into the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history.
Ayew ended the season as the top scorer of Swansea City AFC with 17 goals but could not help his side secure promotion back to the Premiership after losing in the playoffs final against Brentford.
