Jack Mag's hands-on interview with Nordfeldt
25th August 2015
Swans new boy Kristoffer Nordfeldt goes under the spotlight in tonight's Jack Magazine as Garry Monk's side host York City in the Capital One Cup at the Liberty Stadium (7.45pm).
In his first interview with Swansea City's official matchday magazine - available tonight for just £1 - the Swedish international goalkeeper discusses his teenage transition from striker to stopper, his aim of helping the Swans win silverware this season and competition for places.
"I didn't come here to sit on the bench, but I know it's going to take some time to adjust to English football and also to the way the gaffer wants to play football as well," says Nordfeldt, speaking to Jack Magazine ahead of this evening's second round tie.
"It's up to the gaffer who plays. If I play, I would like to prove myself and show what I can do.
"I have patience. Of course, any footballer is not happy to be on the bench, but I respect his decision because that's his job.
"There is a lot of competition here. But when I spoke to the gaffer at the time when I signed for the club, I told him that I needed to get out of my comfort zone a bit."
"During the last couple of years I knew I would be the first-choice goalkeeper at my old club - I more or less knew that I would be playing every week.
"The difference here is that I need to fight for my place, which in the long run is good for me and also for Swansea."
