Andre Ayew sure of EPL success

Andre Dede Ayew

Ghana International and West Ham attacker Andre Ayew is very optimistic that the Hammers have the squad and quality to compete in the 2017/18 English Premier League.

After making some good signing this season, Ayew has cautioned against getting carried away by the Hammers’ potential, this season with the new additions to the club. “I think we have the squad, the players and the quality to be able to do something good, but I think a

lot of other teams also have great players and great squads, so we need to be calm and work hard,”.

“We know what we want and the gaffer Slaven Bilic has given his directions and we are following them. It’s only with time and games that you can start to feel what you can do. “Last season, I wouldn’t say it was a bad season but we had a lot of ups and downs and we only finished one point away from eighth position. We need to work hard, stay calm and have the belief that we can do something great.”, he told the club’s website.

On the other hand, Andre Ayew believes the first three games will be difficult for the Hammers and hopes his team starts off on a good note. “We shouldn’t really talk too much. It’s difficult for us to start the season already with three away games so we need to see how we start the season and from there we can start to know where we are, Ayew said.

“The best way for us is to start well and if we get a good start I think we’re going to do a good season. That’s football. When you start well, it puts you in a positive mind set and gives you the confidence to believe you can do something.

“If we have a good start this year, we have experienced players and good young players so we have a good blend. I believe the gaffer knows exactly what he wants, we are right behind him, so we are going to push and see if we can finish as high as we can because the Club and the fans deserve to be smiling at the end of the season.”

Andre Ayew will be hoping to replicate his impressive form at Swansea for West Ham as injuries rid him off better part of last season. Ayew has a lot to prove he is worth that £20.5 million.
