Abedi Pele admits he is a proud man after his two sons Jordan and Andre Ayew made their Premier League debuts earlier this month, and has backed them both to succeed in the English top-flight.
The three-time African player of the year watched Jordan Ayew make his Premier League bow for Aston Villa against Bournemouth before Andre Ayew scored for Swansea against Chelsea later on in the day.
“It is going to be a long season and these feelings will be there.”
Abedi has had a big hand in the careers of the pair and played a major role in their moves from France – where they were born and had spent their entire professional careers until now.
Jordan and Andre both played for Marseille before Jordan moved on to first Sochaux and later Lorient, where his form and goals earned him a move to Aston Villa. Andre evolved into one of Marseille’s most important players.
