Eder targets cup success
24th August 2015
Having suffered cup final heartache only a few months ago, Eder hopes to go all the way at Swansea City this season.
The 27-year-old missed out on a trophy in May after Braga were cruelly beaten in the Portuguese cup final by Sporting CP.
Eder opened the scoring from the spot in the final only to be denied in the penalty-shootout later as Sporting claimed a 3-1 success.
The Portuguese international, who lifted domestic silverware during his time at Academica in 2012, is now targeting cup glory with the Swans.
And that starts on Tuesday night as Garry Monk's side host League Two side York City in the Capital One Cup second round.
"The cup competitions are very important to us," said Eder.
"As a footballer you want to experience finals, which I did last season, and to win them is a great feeling.
"I'd love to win a cup here with Swansea. But all our concentration is on Tuesday night - we are expecting a really tough game because they will want to cause an upset."
Having made two appearances off the bench in the Swans' opening Barclays Premier League matches, the summer signing hopes to make his first appearance against the Minstermen.
He added: "I have been training hard to make sure I am ready for whenever the manager needs me.
"I've only had a few minutes so far in the league games, but hopefully I can get a chance from the start on Tuesday to show my qualities.
"I dreamed a lot about playing in the Premier League, and now I am in it with Swansea. We have a fantastic team, and it's great for me to a part of it.
"Hopefully we can put in a good performance on Tuesday and progress to the third round."
