Brentford defender Ethan Pinnock and fellow Swansea City forward Andre Ayew have issued a response to Jamal Lowe’s Instagram message to supporters following the Swans missing out on promotion.
Lowe took to his personal Instagram account to insist that the feeling of disappointment from missing out on promotion this term needs to fuel the Swans for next term. That comes with them needing to bounce back from a difficult game against Brentford in the Championship play-off final where they did not turn up in the first half and ended up losing 2-0.
Steve Cooper, if indeed he does still remain in charge at the Liberty Stadium, will need to try and keep as many players from his current squad together next term as possible. That comes with there being uncertainty over the future of players like Ayew who is set to be out of contract this summer.
What club do these 21 former Swansea City players ply their trade at now?
Pinnock took to Instagram to respond to Lowe’s message following their play-off defeat against Brentford, with the defender issuing a motivational message to the Swansea attacker.
He wrote: “Head up brother keep pushing.”
While Ayew, who has formed an effective partnership with Lowe upfront this term, also took to Instagram to reply to his message and praise him for his efforts this season.
He wrote: “Great season bro.”
It was good see the comments from Pinnock to Lowe following his side beating Swansea in the play-off final. The defender will know that it could well have been Brentford on the other side of the result as they were last season when they lost to Fulham at Wembley. That shows that the Swans can recover as the Bees did this term and they can have a successful campaign next year.
Ayew is right that Lowe has enjoyed a strong season for the Swans, he has been pivotal reason as to why they managed to reach the play-offs and come close to securing promotion. The attacker will be aiming to improve even more next season and add a few more goals to his game after his 14 strikes in the league this term.
Lowe’s partnership with Ayew is something that Swansea might have to miss next season, with the forward out of contract this summer. That will place even more pressure on the attacker to continue his improvements under Cooper and enjoy another strong term next year.
