Swansea City goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman, says Andre Ayew is excellent in making players around him better.
The Ghana captain scored two goals at Liberty Stadium on Saturday to help Steve Cooper’s side defeat Middlesbrough 2-1 to stay in contention for Premier League promotion.
Speaking after the game, Woodman maintains that Ayew is a class act, who delivers on and off the field and he remains everyone’s favourite.
He disclosed chats with the 31-year-old gives him confidence and has learned a lot from him.
“It’s not just about the penalties. The fans will see the goals that he scores, but he’s a leader behind the scenes and fantastic to have around the place,” Woodman told the club’s official website.
“I feel like I’ve learned so much from him; even just having a chat with him about different things. He gives great advice out and he gives you this confidence and belief when you do speak to him.
“The fans see the goals, but everyone at the club realises that he’s even better at getting the best out of the players around him – even the younger lads.
“Andre’s got ice in his veins, that’s the joke going around in the dressing room,” Woodman added.
Ayew has netted 13 goals and provided two assists in 32 Championship games so far this season.
