Trialist Ibrahima Thiam is awaiting news on whether he has earned himself a contract with Swansea City.
The Senegal striker arrived on trial last week and featured in the friendlies against Neath and Llanelli.
He scored our 2nd goal in the 3-0 win over Llanelli at Stebonheath Park and he’s hoping he’s done enough to earn a contract.
He told the Evening Post:
|‘I think it is a good team. We have very good staff and the players are very open.|
‘It is very important with players coming into the team to integrate well and be well received.
‘Sure, there are other possibilities for me but I think why not be at Swansea.’
It looks good for Thiam as Martinez gave him praise:
|‘He is a great character,’|
‘To be fair, he has been off for three weeks and had some catching up to do.
‘But I think he applied himself very well and he also managed to score a goal as well, so that is pleasing.’
Had lots of endeavour powerful but needs to work on his finishing and heading he was a little weak in those areas but he may just need to settle down.
Missed a couple of close range chances, not the gretest close control, but could be nerves. Needs a few games to assess.
Check back soon for updates on Thiam.
