Andre Ayew named Swansea Vice-Captain
Ghana Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has been named the Vice-Captain of his club Swansea City.
The forward was made Vice-Captain by his Swansea coach Steve Cooper who praised the Ghanaian’s positive influence on the dressing room.
Steve Cooper praised the impact Ayew has made since returning from African Cup of Nations duty late in the summer.
“Andre is a senior figure and a very positive influence around the group,” said Cooper.
“We know there is a bit of a status to being captain or vice-captain, but we do have senior figures in the squad.
“Andre has got the attributes to lead, and he does it well through good and bad moments and long may that continue.
“It’s good for Matt as well to have players like Andre, Wayne, and Nathan around him.
“Andre is a good role model and leader, I think there is a good culture here everyone helps each other but pushes each other. That’s a good thing.”
