West Ham forward Andre Ayew is keen to get one over his brother Jordan when the two siblings face each other at the London stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Jordan Ayew moved to Swansea from Aston Villa in the January transfer window, while Andre played for the Swans last season before moving to the Hammers in the summer for £20.5million, a club record.
Andre, 27 is the older brother and talking to West Ham’s official website, he said that although he was looking forward to facing his brother, he wants to come out of the fixture with a win:
“We’ve played against each other a few times now, and we played together for the national team and Marseille, so it’s always nice. It’s a different feeling and I’m always happy to meet him on and off the pitch, but I always want to win!”
The crunch match tomorrow is very much a six pointer for both sides. There is a five point gap between the two teams currently with Swansea in 18th and West Ham 15th. A win for the Hammers would ease promotion fears but a defeat would place Slaven Bilic’s side in very real danger.
The Ayew brothers will certainly be putting brotherly love aside for a match which is of such vital importance for both sides.
