Ghanaian forward – André Ayew has opened up on how Rhian Brewster has helped Swansea City to achieve its Sky Bet Championship play-off success.
The English U-21 striker, Rhian Joel Brewster joined the Swans on loan from Liverpool in the January transfer window and has hit the back of the net as many as ten times in 20 appearances for Sam Cooper’s side and Ayew believes he’s one of the sure bet to count on going into tomorrow’s play-off semi-final game against Brentford at the Liberty Stadium.
“Rhian has everything to play for. He has goals, he has speed, and he has power,” said the Swansea vice-captain.
“He is still young, and he has a few things to learn and improve on, but when we are talking about a pure finisher and talent in front of the goal, he has it all.
“He has everything a striker needs to get, and that is very important.
“When you are 19 or 20, and you see the season he has had. If he continues to work hard, he is going to be a top, top player.
“The fact he’s playing games every three days is teaching him a lot.
“He’s learning to cope with it and playing week in, week out, which isn’t easy as the Championship is hard. He’s coped with it really well.
“Like every player he’s had ups and downs, but he’s scoring goals and playing well. I’m happy for him. He has big ambitions and I pray for him to be able to get this club up by his goals.”
Brewster [20yrs] was part of the England squad which won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India and was awarded the Golden Boot award for ending as the competition’s leading goalscorer.
