Narsingh delight at first-team return

The Dutch winger was introduced as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 defeat against Leeds at Elland Road.

It was the first time the former PSV Eindhoven man had pulled on a Swansea City shirt in anger since the home defeat to Southampton last May.

And, while the result was not what he or his team-mates wanted, the 28-year-old could not hide his happiness at getting back out on the field.

“I am very happy, I have not played for a long time, it has been hard but I am happy to play for Swansea,” said Narsingh.

“I felt like a small kid being back out there because everyone wants to play football. I live for my football and to play again means a lot and is a great feeling.

“It has been hard, I played a lot in the Premier League. Things changed but I was always positive and wanted to help the team and the gaffer gave the minutes and I am happy and I did my best.

“My team-mates helped me too, to come into training with a smile every day. I felt like I was part of the team and I hope I can get more minutes in the weeks ahead.”
