Andre Ayew anticipates good season with West Ham United

Ghana attacker Andre Ayew is optimistic of having a good season with West Ham United when the English Premier League kicks off.

Ayew, who joined the Hammers in a record deal from Swansea City last summer failed to his stride in the campaign due to an hamstring injury he suffered on his debut.

The 27-year-old returned after close to four months on the sideline and finished the season strongly by scoring six goals from twenty-five appearances.

The former Olympique Marseille attacker has outlined his ambitions ahead of the upcoming as he gets in shape on the team's pre-season tour.

“Pre-season is something which is very, very important and, for me, I’ve not been able to have a real pre-season for a long time because of the international games,” Ayew told West Ham TV.

“I have always been coming back later, so to start the pre-season with the squad is quite good. I think I’m going to have a month or more with the squad before the pre-season starts so it’s a good opportunity for me to get myself back together and to feel good before the season.”

The deputy Ghana skipper is also hopeful that West Ham United will finish in a respectable position come the end of the season, adding that he hopes to have an injury-free campaign.

“I think I was getting there [ to my best form]. “It was not my optimum, but I was getting there bitby bit by playing games. For me, it was a shame the season came to an end because I was starting to feel better after my injury.

“…We have another season coming up and we have a lot of objectives ahead of us that we want to achieve as a squad,” he concluded.

“So, I need to continue working hard and doing what we were doing at the end of last seasonand I’m sure I will get back to my best physically and everything will be OK.”

Ayew joined West Ham United from Swansea City for £20 million in the summer of 2016.
