Jordan Morris | I can feel the resilience here, we want to carry it forward

First team

Jordan Morris says he can already sense the resilience and togetherness of the Swansea City squad, and is ready to fight hard after making his full debut for his new club.

The forward, on loan from Seattle Sounders, was handed his first start in the FA Cup fifth-round tie against Manchester City.

He got 66 minutes under his belt in the 3-1 defeat, and showed glimpses of the threat he offers with several dangerous runs in behind the City defence.

The 26-year-old and his team-mates will now turn their attentions to Saturday’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday, but the American has been impressed by the mentality he has found at his new club.

“It was obviously a difficult one,” he said of the City game.

“They're an unbelievable team but I thought the guys fought really hard and – having just got here recently – one of the first things I noticed was that mentality and resilience, and you could see it in this game.

“The guys fought really hard and it’s just great to be part of a group that has that mentality.

“It was great to be on the field and fighting out there alongside my new team-mates. It was a good experience getting some more minutes under my belt.

“We are disappointed to lose, but the focus now needs to shift going back into the league this weekend for a really important game.

“Any team in this league is going to be tough, especially away, so we've got to be ready for that challenge and come out flying.”
