Swansea City winger Andre Ayew has issued a determined statement following his side’s 4-4 draw with Hull on Friday night which extended their winless run to five matches.
Steve Cooper’s side thought they had edged to victory over the Tigers following Rhian Brewster’s late strike, but the South Wales outfit then switched off at the death which allowed Hull striker Tom Eaves to poke home an equaliser for his side.
The draw means Swansea have now collected a total of just three points from their last five league outings, with four of these games having come against sides languishing in the bottom half of the Championship table.
Ayew has been one of the Swans’ key performers so far this campaign given he is has already netted 12 goals in his 32 outings, but the Ghana international has only managed to find the back of the net once in his last nine matches.
However, the 30-year-old has now taken to Instagram to admit that Swansea’s performances have not been good enough of late, while he also shared an inspirational message with the aim of lifting his side during this testing period.

Most of the important things in the world has been accomplished by people who have kept on trying where there seemed to be no hope at all. I know our performances have not been the best lately but we can not give up, we will give our best and will fight till the end. Come on JackArmy. ⚪️⚫️
The 12-goal attacker said: “Most of the important things in the world has been accomplished by people who have kept on trying where there seemed to be no hope at all.

Ayew is undoubtably one of the most important members of this Swansea side as a result of both his footballing quality and leadership abilities, with the latter being very much on display in this latest Instagram update.
There is a good reason why the former West Ham man was named vice-captain by Cooper earlier this campaign, and Ayew is one of the experienced members of the squad who must help lead the Swans out of their difficult situation at present.
The players will know they cannot afford to drop many more points between now and the end of the season if they want to maintain their promotion hopes, and strong leadership within the squad will be vital if Swansea are to turn around their fortunes.
