Former Ghana international, Laryea Kinston, expects Andre Ayew to have stellar season for West Ham despite the arrival of top notch attackers.
The Hammers have made a couple of purchases including Javier Hernandez ‘Chicharito’ and Marko Arnautovic who joined for a club record fee of £25 million this summer.
Speaking on the Football Legends Night Show on GH ONE TV yesterday, Laryea Kingston says he expects Andre Ayew to fight for a place in the team because he is naturally a very strong player who loves competition as a means to improve himself.
He said: “One thing about D. Ayew is that he works so hard and even when things are not going his way he tries to do something because he plays with his heart.
“He was unfortunate to get injured in last season’s opener against Chelsea but he finished the season very well. But now that West Ham have signed all these players who are mostly attackers I know he (Ayew) will step up because he likes competition so I still instill my confidence in him,” Laryea said.
The Deputy Captain of the Black Stars will hoping to be handed a starting role by Hammers manager Slaven Billic when the face off against Manchester United in the season opener.
