Ki's ready to go the extra miles

7th October

After putting the hard yards in for his club, Ki Sung-Yueng is now going the extra mile for his country.
The midfielder featured for the full 90 minutes as the Swans shared the spoils with Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday following a 2-2 draw,
Now Ki turns his attentions from the Barclays Premier League to World Cup qualification, with South Korea looking to maintain their perfect start in the Asia group stages.
Ki will make a 13,000 round trip as he leaves Swansea to link up with his nation for their qualifier in Kuwait, before flying to Korea for a friendly match with Jamaica.
Then he returns to Swansea for the club's next top-flight encounter with Stoke City at the Liberty on October 19.

"I have flown around the world playing for South Korea - this time it's to Kuwait and then to Korea," said the 26-year-old.
"It's always a massive honour to play for your country. Being captain, too, is an even greater honour.
"If we can win our game against Kuwait on Thursday then it eases the pressure slightly on the following matches as we would have won four consecutive games in the group.
"But we must concentrate fully on Kuwait because that is going to be a tricky game."
With his nation flying high in the group, Ki believes the Swans have more promising times ahead this season.
Garry Monk's men have picked up ten points from eight games courtesy of wins over Newcastle and Manchester United along with draws against Chelsea, Sunderland, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Ki added: "We've made a decent start in the league, but we can do better.
"This season I think we have more quality in the squad, so we can push on and move up the table.
"Our next game against Stoke will be crucial for us. Winning that will give us a lot of confidence and use that result to use as a platform to move up the table."
