‘Baba Rahman is my brother’ – Jordan Ayew

Jordan Ayew has been saying some fond words about international teammate, Abdul Baba Rahman even describing the new Chelsea defender as his brother.

Ayew who like Baba Rahman, only arrived in England this term is eagerly looking forward to his side, Astob Villa’s Premier League game against elder brother, Andre’ Swansea on October 24, no doubt a big occasion for his family.

But Jordan is equally excited about Villa’s trip to Stamford Bridge a week earlier, 17 October for the fixture against the Blues which could see him come up against compatriot Baba Rahman, who joined Jose Mourinho’s reigning english champions last month.

“Baba is a good friend of mine,” Jordan told Aston Villa’s official website.

“We come from the same town. In fact I wouldn’t even describe him as a friend – more a brother,” Ayew explained.

“I’m very happy for him.

“He’s a very good, modern left-back who can do everything – attacking, defending, crossing.

“It is great for Ghana to have players in the best league in the world.”
