Ghana international Jordan Ayew says that he wants a stronger Aston Villa side as they look to overcome their disastrous start to the 2015/16 Premier League season.
The Villans sacked former Tottenham Hotspurs manager Tim Sherwood on Sunday for poor performances after picking up just one point since the opening day of the season.
Ayew netted his first Premier League goal against Swansea at the weekend but the Walsh side rallied around to produce a winner with his elder brother Andre scoring the winning goal in a 2-1 away win.
“We are playing good football but we are not winning. It’s tough,” he told the club’s official website. “We have to find a solution. As players we have to be stronger to win games. We played well against Swansea but at the end it was zero points.
“We have played against teams who have played no better than us but we haven’t been getting the results. We have to continue working hard now to pick up. No matter how we play, we have to win. We want to pick up victories and make the fans happy.”
Villa returns to action at the St Mary’s to take on Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
