“I want to thank them, and everyone at the football club. I am grateful and this is a good thing, but it is just the beginning. It gives me more energy and desire to work harder for this football club.”
My target was to start well. Thank god everything went well. I need to continue, do better and work harder. We are happy [as a squad], but we all know that it’s still the beginning and we have a lot of games to go, so we know that there are important games coming up, and we need to keep our focus and keep working hard.”
Ayew and Crystal Palace return to Premier League action on Saturday, September 14 when they travel to face Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London.
