Jordan Ayew sees red card against Huddersfield in Premier League


The Ghana international lasted only 11 minutes in their crucial game as they hope to avoid relegation this season

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has seen a straight red card in Swansea City’s game against Huddersfield in the Premier League at John Smith Stadium on Saturday.

The 26-year-old, who won the club’s player of the month of February on Friday, making it two in a row, was shown the exit after he went into a tackle against the hosts’ captain Jonathan Hogg by the 11th minute.

With Swansea winning four out of their last six league games and sharing the spoils in the remaining two, Carlos Carvalhal was hoping the former Aston Villa forward will be instrumental in this game as they want to further push away from the drop.

Although, Jordan and his senior brother Andre Ayew protested against the supposed harsh decision, referee Michael Oliver had none of that and stood on his grounds.

Should Swansea fail to appeal the decision, Ayew will miss the game against Tottenham Hotspur in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup next weekend which will also see his senior brother missing, since he is cap tied, as well as the league game against Southampton to complete the three match ban.

He has featured in 30 league games this season, scoring six goals in the process.
