The Black Stars goal poacher has earned praises from the Portuguese training after a sterling output against Arsenal.
Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal has showered praise on Jordan Ayew following his performance in their 3-1 win over Arsenal on Tuesday evening.
The Swans came from behind to beat Arsenal 3-1 in the English Premier League at the Liberty Stadium.
“I think we prepare very well for the game, but even if you prepare well, you will get nothing if the players do not believe in what you are doing,” Carvalhal told
“So all the credit must go to all my players. All of the players I think are improving. When the dynamic of the team is good, that happens.
“One day, it can be Sam Clucas (who impresses), one day Jordan Ayew, one day Leroy Fer, who is jumping to another level,” he said.
He added: “We knew what would happen in this game – we knew Arsenal would have the ball more because they do that against almost every side.
“But we blocked their dynamic. They like to play between the lines and we blocked them, which meant they had a huge problem creating goalscoring situations.
“A fundamental thing in the game was that our defensive transitions were very strong. Arsenal can hurt you in these situations, but Jordan Ayew was absolutely amazing in the way he, received the ball and waited for the second line of players.
“This was crucial for us. We knew if we could do it, we would create chances and we had three or four in the first half.”
Ayew has registered eight goals with two assists in all competition for Swansea City this season so far.
