Team performance was "perfect", says Andre Ayew
30th August 2015
Scorer Andre Ayew praised a "perfect team performance" as the Swans beat Manchester United - but insisted Garry Monk's squad will remain humble.
The Ghanaian headed home a second-half equaliser against United, with the winger then setting up Bafe Gomis to score the winner.
It was Ayew's third goal in four games, with the Swans up to fourth going into the international break.
With Monk's men collecting eight points from four games, it has been a great start for the Swans.
But Ayew insists they will not get carried away despite the unbeaten start.
"It was a perfect team performance on a difficult day for the team," said the 25-year-old. "We managed to be strong mentally to come back from a goal behind to win the game.
"It was not easy at all and it shows we have a very good team and a great mentality in the squad.
"It was a real team effort. It shows as a whole squad we have great players and in time people are going to realise what great players they are.
"Swansea is a club which is really growing up and getting bigger and better. We are just four games into the season we need to stay calm, continue to play football and fight as a team.
"We just need to stay humble and focused and continue to fight so Swansea can be better.
"It has been a great start but we can always do better."
After notching his third goal since arriving from Marseille in the summer, Ayew has quickly adapted to life in the Premier League.
And he feels it has been down to one factor.
"It is a very difficult league to play in - I still need time to settle in better but the guys have helped me settle in well," he said. "The quality we have in the squad makes it easier for any player coming into the team - all the guys are great and helping me settle in.
"Outside and on the pitch we have great people working for the team. I am trying to pay them back by playing well and scoring goals."
Despite scoring a goal and setting one up, Ayew believes huge praise must be given to skipper Ashley Williams after his last-gasp tackle denied Wayne Rooney from equalising.
He added: "Gylfi gave me a great ball and I was able to get the equaliser and soon after Bafe got the winner.
"But Ash's tackle was more important than our goals - If Wayne Rooney scored at that moment it would have made the game different.
"He (Ash) is a great defender, one of the top three in the league.
"I am not surprised he made the tackle - it proves we have a great squad and if we continue fighting we will have a great season."
