Ghana Black Stars captain, André Ayew’s dream of playing in the English Premier League was dashed once again by Brentford.
The England Championship play-offs saw Brentford score two quick goals under 30-minutes at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
Swansea goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman fouled Bryan Mbuemo on the 9th minute in his goal area.
Forward, Ivan Toney made no mistake by planting Brentford’s opener on the 10th minute from the penalty spot.
With just ten minutes after the opener, Emiliano Marcondes doubled the lead for Brentford in a counterattack move which they held on into the break.
Dede Ayew nearly pulled one back for Swansea just after starting the second half but his header went a fraction off Brentford’s right post.
The Swans were dealt a big blow with 24 minutes to end the game when Jay Fulton was shown a straight red card for a foul on Mathias Jensen.
In front of about 12,000 fans, both clubs were yearning for top flight football but Brentford looked hungrier with promotion worth estimated £178m.
Brentford have not been in top flight for 74 years with Swansea last playing in the Premier League in 2017-18.
Brentford were the same side that sent Swansea City out of the play-offs after overturning a 2-1 first leg deficit to win 3-2 on aggregate in their semifinal last season.
Andre Ayew enjoyed full time of the game with fellow Ghanaian, Tariq Fosu who was an unused substitute for Brentford.
Fosu will likely play in the Premiership if he is retained by Brentford but Dede Ayew must look elsewhere or stay at Swansea for next season’s championship football once again.
For the first time in 74 years, Brentford will play in the English premier league.
