Ghana’s Jordan Ayew will not be getting any form of recognition for his efforts at his club Aston Villa this season.
This is because the club has cancelled the annual player of the year awards as the Villans are set to be relegated from the Barclays Premier League.
They lie bottom of the table with 16 points from 33 matches played so far and this has pushed the club to cancel the awards due to the poor fortunes of the team.
Fans of the team have protested against the owner Randy Lerner and the attitude of the players over the course of the season.
Jordan Ayew, a bright spot in Villa darkness
Despite the development, it seems if Villa fans had their own way, they would award Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew.
Mike McKenna, an Aston Villa fans told the BBC that the Ghanaian needed to be recognised for his work but the general atmosphere around the team has negated that possibility.
“Maybe Jordan Ayew deserved an award but, with the toxic atmosphere, the club have thought it would only garner bad publicity to garnish the players with awards.
“Generally, I would think the supporters support the decision not to have awards as there is nothing to celebrate.”
Jordan Ayew is five matches away from completing his first full season in England after joining from Lorient in the summer.
He has scored 6 goals in his 25 league appearances for the club.
Villa’s last five matches will be against Manchester United (at Old Trafford), Southampton (at Villa Park), Watford (At Vicarage Road), Newcastle (at St. James’ Park) and Arsenal (at the Emirates)
