Jordan Ayew is a ‘phenomenal player’ – Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has heaped praise on Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew following his exploits this season.

The 28-year-old is enjoying his best season in the English Premier League with the Eagles, scoring nine goals and providing one assist in 32 games thus far.

Ayew is currently the club’s top scorer as well as the highest-scoring Ghanaian in the Premier League with 25 goals, breaking Tony Yeboah’s previous record.

“In many ways, he is a phenomenon,” Hodgson told Premier League Productions. “Since he came to us, which is now virtually two seasons ago, he’s been available for every game. Now that’s amazing. I know he’s always there, he always seems to be around but I didn’t know the actual statistic.

“One can’t speak highly enough of a player like that. The mere fact that he’s been there through the two seasons we’ve done quite well… his contribution has been enormous. This season, you could argue, it’s been greater than it was last season because he’s scored some goals.”
