Andre Ayew reveals worst injury in his footballing career

Andre Ayew has revealed that the injury he sustained against Chelsea in the English Premier League was his worst injury in his career.

The Ghanaian suffered an injury on his debut for West Ham and he was subsequently ruled out for close to fourth months.

“After I joined West Ham, I was injured for a long time and then I went to the African Nations Cup. So, my season only started properly there,” the 27-year-old is quoted by The Sun.

“A lot of people underestimated the injury, which was a very difficult one. I had to take a decision whether to have an operation or not.

“There was a lot of hard work and when I came back I still had pain. But I played through it and I never complained.

“When the criticism came I stayed calm because I knew I was not 100 per cent. But I had to go through that to get back.

“It is the worst I’ve had in my career but it made me stronger, tougher.”
