Jordan Ayew has shared that it was nice spending time with his older brothers Andre Dede Ayew and Ibrahim Ayew during the lockdown period as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The 3 brothers found themselves at the house of the Crystal Palace ace following the announcement of the lockdown on March 23 to help curb the spread of the deadly disease.

Though Jordan Ayew insists the restrictions on movement made life difficult, the striker says having the opportunity to spend so much time with his family was a good thing.

“Of course, it was sad [with the lockdown due to COVID-19], but it was really, really good as well as I’ve never spent this much time with the family – two months. Maybe I only see them at the weekends, but no more than two weeks, so it was really good to spend time with my nieces.

"It was a really good feeling to play Monopoly and some games at home and it was really important to spend time with the kids at home", the forward said in an interview with Palace TV.
