Black Stars skipper, Andre Ayew has been confirmed Swansea City vice-captain by manager Steve Cooper.
The manager went on to praise the Ghanaian’s influence in the dressing room since rejoining the side in the summer.
“Andre is a senior figure and a very positive influence around the group,” said Cooper.
“We are very lucky, we have players like Wayne Routledge, Nathan Dyer, and Kyle Naughton too.
“We know there is a bit of a status to being captain or vice-captain, but we do have senior figures in the squad.
“Andre has got the attributes to lead, and he does it well through good and bad moments and long may that continue.
“It’s good for Matt as well to have players like Andre, Wayne, and Nathan around him.
“Matt has thrived in the role, there is no doubt about it. But I know he is open-minded enough to seek advice and I know those boys will give it to him in a constructive and helpful manner.
“Andre is a good role model and leader, I think there is a good culture here everyone helps each other but pushes each other. That’s a good thing”, Cooper is quoted by MyJoyOnline.
Andre Ayew has scored five times so far this season for Swansea City and will now act as deputy to Matt Grimes who was confirmed in the summer.
