Gomis goes on record in Jack Mag
18th September 2015
Swansea's in-form striker Bafe Gomis goes under the spotlight in this weekend's Jack Magazine as Garry Monk's side host Everton at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
The French forward speaks to the official matchday managzine about records, fashion, teaching and becoming a tour guide for a team-mate.
Gomis has added his name to the Swansea City record books this season by becoming the first player to score each of the first four league games of the season since 1923-24.
And with nine goals from his last 11 Barclays Premier League appearances, it marks an impressive return for the forward after a difficult start in South Wales.
"When I first arrived, I found it difficult to adapt," Gomis openly admits. "I didn't speak the language, which made it hard to understand the coach's instructions, and there was a new training regime that I needed to get used to.
"During the first few months of last season, I wasn't playing so much, but Garry spoke to me a lot and I appreciated that.
"But even when I was on the bench, I knew that if I was given a chance, I would be able to take it and score goals.
"When Wilfried (Bony) left and I had a run in the side, I was confident that I would be able to get at least ten goals from the remaining games of the season. And if I stay fit, I know that I am capable of scoring a lot more."
Elsewhere in Saturday's matchday magazine, we get to know a little bit more about Swans starlet Keiran Evans in our Under-18s feature, while U21 hot-shot Oliver McBurnie chats about his new life in Swansea and playing water polo with Wayne Rooney.
