Announce Ballon d’Or for Ayew – Fans celebrate Jordan’s late winner for Crystal Palace
From ‘Ayew’ puns to hilarious memes, Crystal Palace fans and admirers of Black Stars striker, Jordan Ayew, have been celebrating his crucial late winner against West Ham on Saturday.
Jordan’s goal, aside from giving the Eagles all three points in a feisty away encounter, held much more significance as it took Palace into fourth place in the Premier League.
It was not without incident though as Palace had to come back from a goal down to win the game.
The winner might have been disallowed as well had VAR not just been introduced in the Premier League, but Jordan has his goal and the internet just can’t get enough of him.
Here are a few of the best reactions to Jordan’s late strike at the London Stadium.
The real GOAT?
We’ve had to endure years of arguments between fans of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over who the Greatest Of All Time is. But might this Ghanaian star have been wrongly overlooked?
Jordan for Ballon d’Or?
While the usual suspects are in the running for this year’s Ballon d’Or, a few new names like Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane have made a good case for themselves. Time to add a new name to the list?
VAR has had its detractors this season and rightly so in certain cases. However, in this particular instance, you can’t blame Palace fans for thinking Jordan and VAR are a match made in heaven.
Hard work pays…eventually
One common refrain about Jordan Ayew is how hard he works and how tirelessly he runs despite not being a prolific scorer. This season he’s proving he can be both, well kind of.
Royalty is taken pretty seriously in Ghana and while it may not happen nearly enough, it’s good to have others appreciate our grandness once in a while.
