Swansea forward Andre Ayew has hailed boss Garry Monk as a ‘great manager’ and he expects him to turn the club’s current struggles around.

The Jacks have won just one of their last ten matches in all competitions with Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Bournemouth doing nothing to allay the growing concerns surrounding the Liberty Stadium.

Ghana international Ayew was influential in salvaging a point for the Swans in that match, as he scored and won a penalty during the contest as the Welsh club battled back from a two-goal deficit.

The 25-year-old admits the players were trying to show their support for their under fire boss during the game and he has hailed the former defender as a great man to work under.

Ayew said: “He [Monk] shows us a lot of support and confidence. We were trying to give it back to him on the pitch. He’s a great manager, we know what he did last season.”

The former Marseille attacker believes the club should not panic despite their poor run of form and he is confident that there is enough quality in the squad to lift them up the Premier League table.

He added: “We believe we have great players, a great squad, a great manager and everything will be OK. We just need to keep working hard and don’t give up.”

Swansea are currently five points above the relegation zone and they will be looking to pull further away from the bottom three in their next match against Liverpool at Anfield on November 29.

Monk’s side are 6.00 outsiders to end their poor run of form in the match, whilst Jurgen Klopp’s team are available at 1.50 and the draw is a 4.00 shout.
