Ghanaian superstar André Ayew made soccer experts and fans around Europe and France wonder whether he made the right decision by joining lowly ranked Swansea City despite his signature being chased by European giants.
The attacking midfielder, who can also play as a winger, left French giants Marseille following a long serving stint before European big guns such as Liverpool, AS Roma, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur showed serious interest in him.
With teams playing Uefa Champions League football next season battling for his signature, Ayew decided to join Welsh side Swansea, who finished 8th on the Premier League log last season and failed to at least make the Europa League.
The 25-year old said Swansea City striker Bafe Gomis played a huge part in his choice to snub Champions League teams and choose an ordinary team like Swansea City.
Marseille, a French team that Ayew left recently, will be involved in next season's Europa League after finishing 4th in League 1 last season. The dribbling wizard still has the age on his side but will it be when his contract expires at the Liberty Stadium, time will tell.
