Ki delighted with scoring return
7th February 2015
Ki Sung-Yueng saluted a rare headed goal as he helped the Swans come from behind to claim a point against his former club Sunderland.
The South Korean, who spent time on loan with the North East club last season, dived in to meet Kyle Naughton's cross in the 67th minute, with his header powering past keeper Costel Pantilimon.
Ki had the ball in the net in the first half but was ruled offside, with Sunderland taking the lead a minute later through Jermain Defoe.
But the midfielder, who was playing his first game since returning from captaining South Korea to the Asian Cup final, went on to score his fourth of the season.
"I was desperate to come back to Swansea after the end of the competition," said Ki.
"I'm a little tired, but I didn't want to show anyone that as I was determined to give everything I could and help this team climb the table.
"I don't score many headers, but I managed to get forward more today and that allowed me to be in the right positions to get a goal.
"It was a very good cross from Kyle and it was great goal for me to score.
"I was a little disappointed we didn't get three points as we were in control and created a lot of chances."
