Ghanaa forward Jordan Ayew has revealed he has been assigned to a new role of the ‘leader’ by Swansea’s new manager Carlos Carvalhal as they look to move out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.
Ayew scored the equaliser in Swansea’s  City’s dramatic late win 2-1 over Watford on Saturday which lifted the team off the bottom of the table.

It was the Ghanaian international’s scored third Premier League goal of the season and his second in a space of a week.

“The gaffer came in and asked me to be the leader in the dressing room,” Ayew told BBC Sport.

“I try to do that, I try to show it on the pitch as well as with my running, with my commitment, with my fighting spirit and that’s what I try to do now.

“I don’t like to lose because I think I can do much more, I can give more to the team,” he added.

He described Swansea’s win over Watford as “incredible” – giving new manager Carlos Carvalhal a victory in his first match in charge since his appointment on Thursday.

The win was the Welsh side’s first away victory in the Premier League since August.

They face Tottenham at home in their next game on Tuesday.
