Ki: Supporters' award was an "honour"
22nd May 2015
Ki Sung-Yueng says it was an "honour" to be named Supporters' Player of the Year, with the midfielder revealing 2014-15 has been his best season to date.
The South Korean picked up the award at this week's awards night at the Liberty Stadium as the current campaign nears its finale.
Swansea travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday in the final game of a record-breaking season in SA1, with Ki having played an integral role.
The 26-year-old has scored eight goals so far - the most for a South Korean in a single Premier League season.
"It (the award) is the greatest honour," said Ki. "The supporters are always behind us and I thank them. Maybe this is going to be a great time for us.
"It's been my best season of my career, both as a team and an individual - a perfect season.
"I have never scored eight goals in one season in my career but that's because of my team-mates; every single game they are there for me and that's why my season was good."
Ki was ruled out of the final two league games of the season after undergoing a knee operation, but the midfielder is already looking ahead to 2015-16.
"The operation went perfectly, it will take about three or four weeks to get back so it was an ideal time to have it," he said.
"I'm sorry to have missed the end of the season but I feel I pushed myself in every single game.
"We can still perform better. We can go higher, there are more possibilities for us and there will be bigger demands from the manager.
"I think we can do it, but we have to sacrifice and work harder than we did this season."
