Fernandez: My best season so far

28th April

Federico Fernandez has toasted his "best season so far" during a successful first year at Swansea City.
The Argentinian centre-back, who helped his nation to the World Cup final last summer, arrived at the Liberty from Napoli in August.
Fernandez has proved a huge hit since his switch from the Italian giants, going on to make 28 appearances - 24 in the league - as the Swans embarked on a hugely successful campaign.
With last weekend's win at Newcastle United setting a new club points record in the Barclays Premier League, the Swans now look to push the bar higher in their remaining four games.
And Fernandez, who has developed a formidable partnership in the heart of the defence with captain Ashley Williams, feels he has played the best football of his career in SA1.

"I am very happy with the way it's gone for me this season," he said. "Going into a new league can be very tricky, but everyone has helped me adapt to the demands of playing in the Premier League and they've also helped me off the pitch too.
"I've really enjoyed it. We have got some great results against some very big teams, and of course we are in a great position in the league.
"For me, I think it is my best season so far. Although I missed the first few games as I didn't sign here until after the Burnley game, I have gone on to play a lot of matches and I've really enjoyed the challenge of playing different teams with different styles.
"We can be very happy with the way it has gone this season. But the season is not over yet - we have four games left, and we won't relax until the final whistle goes against Crystal Palace."

He added: "To create history for the club with a new points record is something everyone can take a lot of satisfaction from. It's a huge achievement for this club.
"It's a very big moment for Swansea City, but now we want to keep adding more points in the remaining four games.
"This is only my first season at the club but I understand how strongly the coaches, players and fans feel about it. For me, it's really pleasing to be part of a team that has created history. It shows we are improving."
