Ayew Must Make an Instant Impact – Bilic



West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic expects new boy Andre Ayew to be an instant hit at the club.

Ayew, 26, completed a club record transfer switch to the Hammers on Monday from West Ham United.

The big-money move has placed massive responsibilities on his shoulders ahead of the start of the new season this weekend.

And West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has tipped the Ghanaian super star to hit the ground running.

“Yes [I expect Ayew to make an instant impact], I mean a lot of players make it straight away, and some need a little bit of time to adjust,” Bilic said at the official Premier League launch event in north London on Wednesday.

“His first big advantage is that he played in a big, big club like Olympique Marseille, he’s an international and is captain of Ghana and is at his best stage.

“He’s already spent one year in the Premier League so it’s nothing new for him.

“Sometimes wingers, strikers or offensive midfielders need a bit of time, while centre-backs are centre backs and are just doing their job and don’t depend on the team that much.

“The players are good in that they really make new players feel at home after a few days, so I’m sure we can expect some good football from the newcomers straightaway.”

Dede Ayew netted 12 times for the Swans in 34 appearances last season.
