Jordan Ayew gave a lengthy and emotional acceptance speech to Palace TV after being named Crystal Palace Player of the Season for 2019/20.
The Palace frontman earned the accolade after an exceptional personal campaign in which he scored nine times and earned the club 14 points.
Ayew also won the Goal of the Season Award following his brilliant solo effort versus West Ham United at home.
The Ghanaian was also named Players’ Player of the Season and certainly had a successful night.
Jordan Ayew in his acceptance speech reflected on a landmark season and dedicated his Player of the Season award to Pape Diouf, Jordan’s former club president at Olympique de Marseille and mentor who sadly passed away in March this year.
“When I have this type of award I just think of my family and obviously of the fans,” Ayew said.
“And one man that’s been so influential in my football career: that’s Pape Diouf. I lost him within the period of COVID and he passed away, I wish he was still here so I could present him this,” he concluded.
