President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, has hailed Jordan Ayew’s ‘phenomenal’ performances in the just ended Premier League season.
The Ghana international continued his fine form from the 2019 AFCON with the Black Stars, finishing the 2019/20 Premier League as top scorer for Crystal Palace.
The 28 year old capped off a superb season, claiming the Player and Goal of the year awards at Crystal Palace’s end of season awards.
Kurt Okraku has lauded Ayew’s show of determination and verve throughout the season, and has backed him to improve on his numbers next season.
“I think he [Jordan] remind me [of] my active days at Dreams FC where we have this slogan Still Believe,” Okraku told Max TV.
“He is a very good example of that slogan. He has come from a difficult period. Heavily challenged to deliver at that top level.
“Despite the challenges, he has delivered. Thankfully he had a manager who believed in him and he has justified that.
“He has been phenomenal, scored some good goals. He is very calm by nature and I am extremely happy that he has been successful this year. He must keep his head up and shine again.
“He has another opportunity to shine. He will come back and do well.”
Ayew, during the season, broke Tony Yeboah’s long standing record to become Ghana’s highest scorer in the Premier League.
