Kemy Agustien says he cannot wait to start playing more games for the Swans after making his debut on Saturday in the 2-0 home win against Leicester City.

The Dutch midfielder was back in a Swansea City shirt for the first time since he was on trial at the end of July, and he showed his appreciation to the fans after Saturday’s game.

After recovering from a knee ligament injury that he picked up in a friendly in Den Haag, Kemy Agustien now says he can’t wait to start playing regularly for his new club:

‘I had an injury and I knew I had to get back first before I could make an impact in the team,’ he said.

‘I’ve worked hard and I was happy to be on the pitch on Saturday.

‘I am there (fitness-wise), though my knee is still sore after a while, but I can do everything now so I can be there in the next game.

‘I want to be involved in every game now.’


Agustien has been impressed with the quality in the Swansea team and he says their style is perfect for him:

‘I love to play football and this system is perfect for me.

‘It’s all about the quality in our team. It doesn’t really matter if you are Dutch, Spanish or whatever, the quality is there and we have to prove it on the pitch.

‘It was the first thing I noticed when I was on trial in Holland, I didn’t expect the way we were playing football.

‘It was like I was watching a Dutch team playing football.

‘Normally English league teams are more kick and rush, but Swansea try to keep the ball, play football and make angles. It’s the way I like to play.

‘The positioning, quality of play and quality in the squad is perfect.’
