I’m ‘Pleased To Shut Critics Up’- Jordan Ayew

Jordan Ayew says he is pleased to score goals for Crystal Palace after their 3-0 win over Arsenal last Monday.

Ayew was on the scoresheet after he had a fined pass from Joachim Andersen to double the lead for Palace on the 24 minutes.

Jordan Ayew cut inside and guided Joachim Andersen’s excellent pass into the far corner.

His goal helped Palace to brush aside Arsenal in the London derby.

“It’s a lovely pass [from Joachim Andersen]. it’s on my left foot – people give me stick about my left foot, but today I think I showed them that I have a good left foot,” Ayew told Palace’s official website.

“I just slotted it in. I’m very happy, and I hope it’s not the last goal I score. I hope there is more to come in the next few games.

“I’m pleased. As soon as I came back from Afcon, I didn’t really have game time, and today [Monday] I had my opportunity so I’m happy to have taken it and happy to score as well,” he added.

“It has not been easy but we keep on pushing and working, and we’re happy it paid off.”

Ayew was substituted on the 76 minutes for Odsonne Edouard after Arsenal were still chasing shadows.

And the 30-year-old received a wonderful atmosphere by the home fans following his workrate for his side.

“It’s amazing. I told the guys: I’ve never played against Arsenal and won 3-0 before. It’s amazing. This season has been really, really good. We’ve enjoyed it and hopefully, we will build on it for next year,” he continued.

“As players, we always want to do positive things. We have positive things coming ahead, like the semi-final of the FA Cup. Everyone wants to participate, and we’ll do our best to help the club achieve its goals. [The standing ovation] was nice.

“I was surprised, but obviously they have always been good to me, the fans, and I need to thank them as well. Things have not been easy. We keep on going, keep on fighting, and keep on working hard. Days like today we want often. “In life, you don’t decide – but we do our best.”
