Swansea City coach Carlos Carvalhal has expressed his happiness following the recent rise in performance of Ghana striker Jordan Ayew.
The 26-year-old was on target in Swansea’s 2-1 victory over Championship log leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup on Wednesday.
Ayews scored a brilliant goal on 11th minute after he went past five defenders. Substitute Jota equalised for Wolves in the second half but Wilfred Bony snatched the match-winner with a calm finish.
“In the five games I’ve been in charge, we’ve won two, drawn two and lost one. This was the best match we’ve played, especially in the first half and we posed Wolves lots of problems,” Carvalhal told the press after the game.
“We controlled the first 45 minutes, but after that the tempo was down. We let Wolves get a goal, but we got a second and then we closed the door and made it very difficult.
“It was a great goal from Jordan and he deserves it. He is a fighter and works very hard for the team.
“I’m proud of my players and now we are building confidence and momentum,” he added.
Ayew has scored seven goals in all competitions this season including four in the Premier League.
Swansea will face League Two promotion contenders Notts County in the next round of matches.
