Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate has lauded the performance of Swansea City trio of Andre Ayew, Rhian Brewster, and Conor Gallagher after the Swans thrashed Boro 3-0 at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.
The game marked the return of Championship fixtures after a halt in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ayew scored and provided an assist while Liverpool loanee Brewster bagged a brace as the Swansea recorded a comfortable victory.
“They’ve got some exceptional players in Rhian Brewster, Conor Gallagher and Andre Ayew. We just couldn’t deal with them,” Woodgate was quoted as saying in Wales Online.
“It’s hard to explain that type of performance. It’s not nice to see. It was just the basics of the game at times. It wasn’t good enough.
“We won’t come up against a Brewster, an Ayew or a Conor Gallagher again. Them three up top, I thought they were absolutely outstanding.”
The win lifted them to 9th on the league table, boosting their bid for Premier League promotion.
Andre Ayew remains the club’s highest scorer in all competitions with 15 goals and six assists after making 35 appearances so far this season.
