Andre Ayew Ruled Out Of Swansea City Game Against Rotherham Due To Injury

Swansea City manager Steve Cooper has confirmed that Andre Ayew will miss their Saturday’s Championship meeting with Rotherham United at the Liberty Stadium.

The Ghana captain sustained an injury while on international duty with Ghana last week.

The injury forced Andre to miss Blak Stars return game against Sudan in Omdurman on Tuesday in the 2021 African Cup of Nations [Afcon] qualifiers.

The 30-year-old is expected to sit out for weeks.
“Andre and Marc came back early from international duty, that was precautionary more than anything else,” Cooper told pressmen ahead of Sunday’s league fixture, his club’s official website has reported.

“Obviously we have had a busy schedule and they have played every minute of every league game up until now.

“They then went into a full-on international camp, so they are naturally going to be tired and, like everybody, going to be at risk of fatigue.

“From fatigue you can start feeling some strain and muscle soreness, so they came back early as a precaution.

“They are doubts for the weekend, but we haven’t made a final call on it as yet.”

Ayew has been a key player for the Swans in the ongoing season scoring five goals to his credit after 11 appearances.
