Ayew hopeful of Swansea City's survival in Premier League

The Ghanaian, who returned to the Jack Army from the Hammers during January transfer window, believes they have the quality to beat the drop

Ghana international Andre Ayew has assured Swansea City faithful that the club will survive relegation scare despite their recent poor run in the Premier League.

The Jack Army had a wonderful run between January and early March but have gone six games without a win, picking two points on the road and currently sit one place above the drop zone.

The 28-year-old, who returned to the club from West Ham United in January, says the Swans have the quality to maintain their top-flight status.

“We have to stay positive and I’m 100 per cent confident that we will stay up since we have that quality. If we want to stay in the Premier League we have to be strong and be ready for any challenge,” said Ayew, as quoted by Walesonline.

“We are working well, training hard and the lads are showing a lot of mental strength when the going is difficult.

“I have a lot of confidence in the guys and they are a real tough bunch, we are going to the end together as a unit and as a family and we are fighting for our lives,” he added.

After nine appearances, Ayew is yet to find the back of the net but his younger brother Jordan is the club's current top scorer with seven goals.
