New loan signing Marvin Emnes says that the way Swansea City play will suit his style, as he aims to get some much-needed match experience during his spell at the Liberty Stadium.

The 22 year-old winger revealed to the Official Site that the Swans tried signing him at the start of the season:

‘I spoke to the manager (Brendan Rodgers) before I came and we both agreed that the way Swansea play will suit my style,”

‘I like to play on either wing, left or right, and create one on one situations with defenders because my pace is good for me.

‘The team is doing well at the moment and I know I will have to wait for my chance. But I need to play games and that’s why I’m here.

‘I heard Swansea tried to get me at the beginning of the season, but it didn’t happen for one reason or another. But I’m here now.”


Emnes also talked about the only goal he has scored for Middlesbrough since joining them in 2008, which was against the Swans at the Liberty Stadium in August 2009. He has also played with Kemy Agustien, and against goalkeeper Dorus De Vries:

‘I remember it being a nice stadium and a good atmosphere. I also remember the goal,”

‘Hopefully I can score for Swansea as well.”

‘I played with Kemy in the national side,”

‘I know him very well.

‘I’ve also played against Dorus in Holland – and scored against him!”
