Clement's confidence is crucial for Narsingh
10th March 2017
Dutch flier Luciano Narsingh has praised Paul Clement for helping him get up to speed with the Premier League.
The winger made his first start for the Swans in last weekend's 3-2 win over Burnley at the Liberty.
Narsingh, who had already made four substitute appearances, proved a constant threat down the right flank with his rapid pace.
And the 26-year-old hailed head coach Clement's role in helping him make a quick impression at the Liberty.
"Paul Clement has been fantastic to me," said the Holland international, who arrived in SA1 from PSV Eindhoven in January.
"I was his first signing and I want to repay him for the faith he has shown in me.
"He wants me to take risks and he has given me a lot of confidence.
"As a winger you need to think freely in your head - if I make a mistake four times in a row he won't shout at me. He will say 'try it for a fifth time'.
"That's what you want to hear as a player in my position."
The Swans sit five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Saturday's trip to Hull City.
The Tigers are 19th in the table - six points behind Clement's side - but have shown improvement under new boss Marco Silva, which includes a 2-0 home win over Liverpool.
But Narsingh believes the Swans head to the KCOM Stadium buoyed by last weekend's dramatic last-gasp win over Burnley.
"I have been really impressed with the attitude within the team," he added. "Last week, despite trailing 2-1, we were not happy at going into the final moments at 2-2.
"The whole team wanted to push for a winner, and we did that right up until the end.
"We must take that same attitude into this game against Hull. If we win then that will be a huge boost to our chances of staying up."
