Montero's made a quick impression with the Swans
20th February 2015
Pace ace Jefferson Montero admits he's loving life in the fast lane after fully acclimatising into the "best league in the world".
The Ecuadorian winger has made 23 appearances for the Swans since arriving from Mexican side Morelia last summer, with his sheer pace proving a stumbling block for many top-flight full-backs.
Montero made an instant impression with the Swans as he came off the bench to play a key role in Gylfi Sigurdsson's winning goal during the opening-day win at Manchester United.
And the 25-year-old has been pleased with the impact he has made so far in a league he believes to be the best in world football.
"For me, it's the best league in the world. I love the Premier League," said Montero, who has experienced Spain's La Liga with Villarreal, Levante and Real Betis along with Mexico's top flight.
"It's very different to the leagues I've played in. It's much faster, more disciplined tactically and it's about attacking and defending.
"I'm enjoying playing in the Premier League although it was not easy acclimatising in such a short space of time. But my wife, child and myself are very happy so it's been a very good experience so far."
With Louis van Gaal's side visiting the Liberty this Saturday seeking to avenge that opening-day defeat at Old Trafford, the Swans target a first ever league double over the Red Devils.
And Montero is relishing the opportunity to once again face a United side which could feature his fellow countryman Antonio Valencia.
"Manchester United are one of the biggest and most powerful clubs in the world, so you want to play against these teams," said Montero. "It's something you will tell your children and grandchildren about - that you have played against some of the best in the world.
"We are looking forward to the game. We are very focussed and the manager has put everything in place so that can we can beat Manchester United."
