Andre Ayew’s Swansea City have been gotten rid of from the Carabao Cup after losing 2:0 League Two club Newport County in the first round on Saturday night.

A first-half brace from Tristan Abrahams in the seventh minute and on the stroke of half-time sufficed for the home side.

Following their elimination, supervisor of Swansea City, Steve Cooper feels his side were 2nd finest behind the League 2 club.

” It’s a frustrating outcome and a frustrating efficiency,” Cooper said.

” Congratulations to Newport for going through to the next round.

” I think in simple terms, the non-negotiables of football, we were second finest at today. When you do that, you always make it hard for yourselves which’s what we did.

” We left it too late to try and get ourselves back in the video game.

” No excuses. I know we’re only a number of weeks in, but we’re not going to make any excuses, we were second best.”

Ayew will be wishing to win when Swansea City travel to Preston North End for their league opening fixture.

Meanwhile, Ayew is expected to leave the Swans this summertime.
