Cork's sweet taste of success
22nd February 2015
Jack Cork saluted his first taste of victory as a Swansea City player after playing a key role in the 2-1 win over Manchester United at the Liberty.
Garry Monk's side came from behind to claim three points thanks to goals from Ki Sung-Yueng and Bafe Gomis' deflection off a Jonjo Shelevy thunderbolt.
Victory meant the Swans had booked a first league double over the Red Devils, while for Cork it was his first win for his new club since arriving in SA1 from Southampton at the end of January.
"I wasn't a part of the club when we won at Old Trafford on the opening day, but I'm sure this feels as good - maybe even better - than that win for the lads," said Cork.
"It's my first win since I've arrived and it's a great feeling.
"We played some good football in the first half and it was crucial to equalise soon after they took the lead.
"If we had gone in trailing at half-time it would have been difficult, but we showed tremendous character.
"We have some great players in our squad and although we were on the back foot at times we kept a good shape. We were tight as a unit and made it hard for them to get through.
"That gave us the opportunity to be in a position where we could go on and win the game, and we were all delighted to hear the final whistle."
Cork, who made his third straight start for the Swans, added: "Keeping my place in this team will be a massive challenge because there's so much quality in the squad.
"I want to play more and see how far we can go this season. We have a very strong squad and results like this show that we can beat the best in the division."
