Nelson Oliveira's first in-depth interview with Jack Mag
16th January 2015
Swansea new boy Nelson Oliveira gives his first in-depth interview to Jack Magazine as the Swans host Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm, January 17).
The 23-year-old Portugal international speaks to the official matchday programme about watching the Swans win the Capital One Cup, learning from Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, and why he's already feeling at home in South Wales.
"I love the way Swansea play; they caught my eye before I came here," explained Oliveira, who made his Swans debut in the 1-1 draw with West Ham last weekend following his arrival on loan from Benfica.
"Not only the way they have played this season, but I remember watching Swansea win the League Cup two seasons ago.
"The rise of the club has been incredible, which made their success even more interesting and made me curious.
"The style of football is different to a lot of other clubs in the Premier League, so I started to follow them."
Also in Saturday's 84-page edition of Jack Magazine, Swans legend and former Chelsea goalkeeper Roger Freestone discusses his time at the Vetch Field and Stamford Bridge, while Under-21s coach Chris Llewellyn reflect upon the season so far for Swansea's table-topping development squad.
Meanwhile, TV presenter and Chelsea supporter Mark Austin gives us his thoughts on Saturday's big clash, club ambassador Lee Trundle looks back on his highlights of 2014, and current first-team coach and Swans legend Alan Curtis features in 'Top Flight Jacks'.
And there's plenty more in store to keep you entertained right up until kick-off in this weekend's jam-packed edition of Jack Magazine, which will be available for £3 on matchday from around the Liberty Stadium, the Club Shop and online.
It will also be available in Slee Stores in Plasmari, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
Jack Magazine really is a must-have for any Swans fan. Don't miss out.
