[Andre Ayew believes his successful career can be traced to advice and influence from his father, Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew] When you are lucky to have a dad like that, you try to learn from him and take his advice. He was a great player – three times Africa’s best – and won the Champions League as well as all the other trophies that existed. I ask him for advice because he is somebody who knows football very well. However, when I was younger, he never pushed me to play. When we were younger, he didn’t really want us to play football. He wanted us to focus on school and education and to make sure we had respect for people when we were growing up. Those were his priorities

[Andre Ayew not interested in January transfer away from Swansea City] I’m not thinking at all about that. I’m here, I’m 100% here just thinking about the next game, that’s Luton. That’s speculation, that’s what people are going to say. I’m just focusing on what’s ahead of me and I’m happy here so that’s not something I think about
[Ayew stressed that he could have moved during the last summer transfer window, but decided to stay in South Wales] I think I can do it at any level. That’s not my question. I think I can play at any level, that’s not the problem. I’m happy here. If I’m here it’s because I decided to be here. It was my decision. I’m just happy, playing my football, enjoying with the lads. We want to do something great so we need to keep working and later we will see [what happens].

[Andre Ayew have penned an emotional tribute to late Pape Diouf. The Senegalese, who was a former president of Olympique Marseille, passed away aged 68 on Tuesday due to complications from the coronavirus] I have no words to express the pain I feel at the news of this terrible news, so many memories come to my mind. You were a grandfather, a father but above all my mentor and even much more than that, you were my legal tutor when I arrived in France at the age of 14 years. You welcomed me, you took care of me, you supported and accompanied me in the pursuit of my dream of becoming a professional footballer. At each step you were present, I still remember when I came back to your office and you asked me for explanations about my grades at school that you did not find satisfactory. You never made me privileged, you taught me that to get something in life you have to fight and give yourself the means. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me, my father, my brother and all my family. As I write this message, so many images come to my mind that I will not be able to describe them in a few lines. You are known as a journalist, agent, president, the first black man to be president of a first division football club in Europe, but for me you represented much more than that and it is difficult for me today to tell that, until we meet again. You have been, you are and you will remain a great gentleman, a very great gentleman. May your soul rest in peace. RIP Pape Diouf
