‘He’s massively important’ – Crystal Palace’s Vieira gushes over Ayew’s display vs Southampton

 The Ghana international’s second-half effort rescued the Eagles from defeat, prompting his manager to wax lyrical about him

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has lauded Joran Ayew for his showing against Southampton while stating that he is "massively important" to his team.

Ayew, 30, was among the scorers as the Eagles held the Saints to a 2-2 draw at the Selhurst Park in Tuesday’s English Premier League fixture.

That effort saw him record his first goal in 43 English topflight matches for the South London team as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men would rue their missed scoring opportunities.

Lifted by the former Swansea City star’s showing, the French tactician lavished praises on the African, claiming he got rewarded for his ‘work ethic’.
