Cardiff away Michael Obafemi celebration

Michael Obafemi was proud to deliver in the biggest game of his career to date and help ensure he and his Swansea City team-mates will forever hold a special place in South Wales derby history.

The in-form striker bagged a brace as Russell Martin’s Swans ran riot at Cardiff City Stadium.

Ben Cabango and Hannes Wolf were also on the scoresheet in an emphatic 4-0 win, which followed up a 3-0 success on home turf back in October.

It ensured Swansea completed the first league double in the 110-year history of the fixture; a feat that will be unique to the club and the current group of players and staff.

While still only 21 years of age, Obafemi already has international and Premier League experience under his belt.

But it was his derby debut that he considered his biggest test yet, and it was one he was delighted to come through with flying colours.

“It’s an incredible feeling. In the build up we talked about making history and the mood in the camp all week was amazing. We knew we could do it,” he said.

“I was happy to score two goals and, for me, I felt this was the biggest game of my career.

“The fans were amazing, we know what the game means to them, and I wanted to show them what sort of player I am, and I hope I did that. 

“We have written our names into the history books and it is a fantastic feeling that we just want to soak up.”
