Ghana captain Andre Ayew was the hero once again for his under fire side Swansea City on Saturday in their Championship game against Middlesbrough.

Swansea were on a free fall failing to win any of their last six matches in the English Championship.

The Ghana captain rescued a point for the Swans in their 1-1 draw in midweek against Blackburn Rovers and was the star man as he scored a brace in their three one win over Middlesbrough.

Manager Steve Cooper has been waxing lyrical about the performance of his vice captain and key asset:

“I’ll keep saying it because it’s the truth. He’s been brilliant and he’s a class act both on and off the pitch.”

“First and foremost as a player, he delivers. His attitude and work ethic is right up there and he’s a brilliant personality off the pitch as well in terms of leading the way, helping with the younger players and long may it continue.”

On the other hand, the Swansea manager thinks the 29-year-old can excel in the higher leagues.

“We know Andre can play higher than this level. But I can only go off what I can see and that is a player who’s giving more than 100%, delivering, scoring.

Cooper again heaped praises on the Ghanaian for his performance in his team’s previous game against Blackburn Rovers.

“You think back to the performance against Blackburn and he’s sliding in tackles in the defensive third and creating counter-attacks himself.

Cooper stated emphatically that the Ghanaian is really happy at the Liberty Stadium.

“That tells me he’s really happy. I have a wonderful relationship with him. I like him a lot. I think he likes me a little bit as well!

Cooper expressed his gratitude for having Ayew at the club.

“For as long as he’s here playing, the better for the football club.

“I can’t speak highly enough of him.”he concluded.
