Swansea City lost to Brentford in the Championship play-off final this Saturday. Ghanaian midfilder Andre Ayew missed to produce the required moment of magic to help his side.
The Swans endured a disastrous start at Wembley. And they went 2-0 down thanks to first half goals from Ivan Toney and Emiliano Marcondes.
Steve Cooper’s men pushed in the second half. But they ultimately left themselves with too much to do. Particularly after Jay Fulton was dismissed for a foul on Mathias Jensen.
Immediately after the game, the Swansea players showed their appreciation to the 5,000 members of the Jack Army in attendance.
Ayew cut a dejected figure as fans chanted his name – with the Ghanaian responding by applauding the Swansea faithful.
He then embraced Wayne Routledge – who missed the game due to injury – in what were emotional scenes in the English capital.
The Ghanaian finished the campaign as Swansea’s top scorer having netted 17 Championship goals.
However, his contract expires this summer, meaning it appears likely that the 31-year-old has played his final game for the Swans.
Freddie Woodman, Marc Guehi and Conor Hourihane are also set to return to their parent clubs.
