Ghana and Swansea forward Andre Ayew is over the moon for his match-winner at Villa Park that inflicted more pains on his brother Jordan Ayew and his struggling Aston Villa side on Saturday.
Jordan struck the first blow on Saturday afternoon when he opened the scoring for Villa early on in the second half, before Gylfi Sigurdsson leveled the scores with a stunning free-kick on 67 minutes.
With three minutes left on the clock, Andre had the final say when he prodded home the match winner from Kyle Naughton’s pin-point cross in a family affair at Villa Park as the Swans beat Villa 2-1.
Jordan may have won round one of the battle of the brothers when the pair last met during an enthralling encounter between Andre’s Marseille and Jordan’s Lorient (5-3), but Andrew who ensured he came out on top on this occasion said they were now at par.
“It’s one-one now, so it’s OK. We’ve been in this situation before.
“Today, he scored just after I had an opportunity that Bafe laid on for me. The keeper made a save, and on the counter attack he (Jordan) scored.
“But I stayed in the game, the guys gave me more confidence and Gylfi scored a great free-kick that got us back into the match.
“I felt that was the real match-winner because if that wasn’t on, the game would’ve been more difficult.
“After the goal, there was more space and we had more room to play, then we got the second goal, so we’re really happy.” Andre told the Swansea official website
Typical of his nature, the Swansea man heaped praises on his team-mates, hailing their display of “fighting spirit” to come from behind to secure an important three points.
