Crystal Palace midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate expressed his delight in Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp, he went as far as describing them as ‘unbelievable,’ Ghanasoccernet revealed.
Ayew and Schlupp were in the matchday squad as Crystal Palace went on to secure a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on Tuesday, December 3.
Schlupp scored the screamer that won the Eagles three points, while Ayew was handed the Man of the Match award.
“[Ayew] was unbelievable. We know Jordan is a good player, he fights for everybody, for every ball. He didn’t score today but he had a very, very good game,” said Kouyate after the game.
“[Schlupp is also] unbelievable, it’s the goal he scores every time in training. For me, I’m not surprised for this goal – it’s a very important win tonight and we must enjoy tonight,” he added.
“I know this position,” Kouyate said. “I played for Anderlecht at centre-back and for West Ham. Sometimes for my country also.
“I know this position, it’s not new to me. Some guys, they are surprised for me to play centre-back but I know this position.
“We know every job we’re going to do. If he [Schlupp] plays left-back or I play centre-back, we know the job. For me, the difference today is the mentality. This is good for the team.”
