Fernando Llorente can't wait for Liberty experience
19th August 2016
Fernando Llorente admits he can't wait for his first experience of the Premier League at the Liberty this Saturday.
The Swans host newly-promoted Hull City in SA1 this Saturday with both teams going into the game having picked up victories on the opening weekend.
Llorente got his first taste of English football's top flight when he started in the Swans' 1-0 win at Burnley last weekend.
And the World Cup winner, who joined the Swans from Sevilla this month, is relishing his first serving of Premier League action at the Liberty in front of the Jack Army.
"For me, the Premier League is amazing. The atmosphere is incredible," said Llorente, whose header played a big part in Leroy Fer's winner last weekend at Turf Moor.
"I want to play at the Liberty Stadium a lot. I would love to play right now, but we have to wait until Saturday."
Francesco Guidolin's side host managerless Hull, led by caretaker boss Mike Phelan, in Saturday's encounter.
The Tigers claimed a shock win last weekend as they beat defending champions Leicester City 2-1 despite having only 13 senior players available.
But Llorente, giving his first ever interview in English, is wary of the Tigers' threat.
"Hull City won their last match and that will help their confidence," said the Spanish international. "In the Premier League I can see that every match is difficult.
"But we play at our stadium with our supporters behind us, and we need to play well and win."
