Three-time African footballer of the year Abedi Ayew Pele says his heart will be with both Aston Villa and Swansea City when his two children take on each other for the first time in the Barclays Premier League.
Aston Villa will take on Swansea City at Villa Park this weekend in a game which pits Andre Ayew with younger brother Jordan.
The last time both players played against each other, it was Jordan who emerged victorious with his two goals to inspire Lorient to a 5-3 victory at the Stade Velodrome.
That night, Andre also got a goal but Jordan was the man of the match. Andre has wasted little time in settling into life with Swansea after scoring four goals and an assist in his first nine games.
Jordan on the contrast has had a difficult start and is yet to fully impose himself in the world most dramatic league. But their father Abedi Pele says he will be cheering on both Villa and Swansea and prays both players get on the score-sheet.
“My heart will be on both teams when my children are playing against each other and the next thing is that I pray both players score for their respective teams,” Abedi Pele exclusively told Citi Sports.
He added: “I saw Lorient play against Marseille in Marseille and Jordan scored two and Andre scored one. I was the happiest man on Earth that day “I always love the fact that they play against each other and when they both score, it really makes my day.”
