Ki targets special scoring season

2nd May 2015

Ki Sung-Yueng believes finishing 2014-15 as Swansea's top league goalscorer would be the perfect way to round off his "best" ever season.

The South Korea international scored his eighth goal of the Premier League campaign in Swansea's 2-0 victory over Stoke City this afternoon, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafe Gomis trailing on six goals each for the current campaign.

Ki came off the bench to help secure three points for the Swans against the Potters with a precise finish past Jack Butland after Jefferson Montero's diving header had given Garry Monk's side the lead.

And Ki was delighted to play his part as the Swans tightened their grip on eighth place in the top flight.

"If I do (finish the season as top goalscorer), it would be the first time in my career to finish as top scorer of a team," laughed Ki. 

"It has maybe been the best season for myself. I always give 100 per cent, and I want to finish this season well.

"I always try to help the team to win. I didn't play as much today, but it doesn't matter if it's one minute or 90 minutes, I always want to help."

He added: "Stoke were just behind us before today, so it was important we made sure we took the points at our home ground. 

"The boys, especially in the second half, were fantastic. We kept the ball and controlled the game.

"It's our best season ever in the Premier Legaue, and we hope to get more points with three games to go. 

"It's not impossible to reach seventh position, so we will keep challenging ourselves."
