Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew is happy about the return of the Premier League after the coronavirus shutdown.
Ayew’ side will travel to the Vitality stadium to face Bournemouth on the restart of the Premier League.
Though the former Swansea City striker admits it is strange to play without the fans, he is delighted to return to competitive football.
“Football is my life; I grew up in football. It is the only thing I literally know how to do and the only thing that keeps me busy,” he said. “Not having football for two months, I was really sad, not depressed, but not too far from it,” he told Palace TV
“Things are moving slowly, there is football on TV, it is a good thing for me. I am really, really excited for the first game back of the season.
“Now we are resuming the season, but it’s like a new season basically because we’ve had maybe two, three weeks to train together, things change, I cannot explain it, but without fans it is not the same thing, we all know how important the fans are.”
Ayew is expected to continue his sparkling form before the covid-19 outbreak.
