Home sweet home for Ayew
16th August 2015
Andre Ayew was delighted to cap off his home debut with a goal and a victory as the Swans beat Newcastle 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
The Ghanaian international scored his second goal in as many games to help Garry Monk's side follow up a positive display at Chelsea on the opening day of the season.
After Bafe Gomis opened the scoring for the Swans inside ten minutes, Ayew scored Swansea's second of the afternoon with a thunderous header from Jefferson Montero's cross.
And the former Marseille man admits he is pleased to have got off to a flying start in the Barclays Premier League, but insists that the team's result is the most important thing.
"I'm very pleased with the victory today," said Ayew. "It was important that we continued what we did at Chelsea with a win.
"It was a good result at home. It was important to start the game on the front foot and Bafe got us a great goal early on, which made the game a bit easier for us.
"The guys have really helped me settle, and I am happy to have scored in both games. Hopefully it continues like this, but the most important thing is that Swansea win.
"The team spirit is really good here. When you come from a different country, it is important that the guys help you, and that is what has happened for me here.
"I am really pleased to have played my first game at home in front of the fans. Hopefully we can achieve more victories to make them happy."
