Jordan pumped up for Saturday clash with Andre in Premier League

The 26-year-old is focused on helping Swansea City win full points at the expense of his brother's outfit

There will be no brotherhood on the pitch on Saturday despite Andre and Jordan Ayew all but set to face each other in the Premier League, the latter has said.

Undoubtedly, the siblings will be the major attraction when West Ham United welcome Swansea City to the London Stadium.

And considering they scored against each other when they first met in the English topflight in 2015, any attention they get will certainly not be out of place. 

“It is always a positive thing to play against my brother, for us and for our family,” Jordan, who plays for Swansea, said, as reported by his club's official website.

“It shows that we have both realised our dream. Personally, I feel proud and blessed to play against my brother.

“Lots of people would like to do it. I have been lucky to have that opportunity in two different leagues.

“But when we are on the pitch, we are playing for our teams, there is no family thing for 90 minutes. Everyone wants to defend their colours.

“Then, after the game, life continues and everything is normal.”

Swansea have picked only a point from their last three league games and it is the desire to get back to winning ways that spurs on the Jack Army ahead of Saturday.

“It’s a massive game,” Jordan said.

“We hope to produce a good performance. We will try to get something.

“It’s always good to get a good result before the international break. 

"You always want to win of course – it makes everyone happy.”

No matter the outcome of Saturday's fixture, there will be no international break for Jordan as he, together with brother Andre, has been left out of Ghana's squad for next month's World Cup qualifier against Uganda.
