Aston Villa boss Remi Garde has singled out Ghanian striker Jordan Ayew to be important for the Midlands club for the rest of the season.
With their hopes of avoiding relegation all but dead and buried, the French manager has highlighted how the on-the-field influence of his tricky forward will still be important for the team as a whole.
“Jordan can be important now,” he told the The Sunday Times. “In a period when the team wasn’t performing Jordan was playing well
“He made a big mistake: for the team. I’m sure that he will have to prove to his teammates and everybody else in the club that he regrets his mistakes and do his maximum.”
Villa play host to Roberto Martinez’s Everton side this evening with the first of Villa fans’ three scheduled 74th minute walk-outs expected to take place.
