Ghana International Andre Ayew made his first appearance in the Turkish top-flight as Fenerbahçe S.K. got their campaign off to a great start with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Bursaspor.
The game was Ayew’s official debut since completing his loan switch from Swansea this summer.
The 28-year old was handed a starters’ shirt by coach Phillip Cocu but was substituted in the closing seconds of the game by Alper Potuk.
