Sam Surridge | I want to be the main man for Swansea City

3rd December
First team

Sam Surridge has had to bide his time when it comes to Championship starts, but the striker has made clear he wants to be the main man leading the Swansea City line after featuring from the off against Fulham.

The 21-year-old made his second league start of the season against the Cottagers, and was praised by head coach Steve Cooper for his performance despite the Swans falling to a 2-1 defeat.

The England Under-21 international already has five goals to his name this season, and loved the chance to start at home in the Championship for the first time even though he could not add to his tally.

But he is clear on what his goal is for the weeks and months ahead.

“I loved it. I felt like it was a long time coming but it was good to be out there,” he said.

“I just tried to play my own game. I thought I played well, although I wish I could have taken that chance I had in the first half.

“The fact that I’ve done well against a top team like Fulham gives me a lot of confidence going into the games ahead.

“Hopefully, I can start again next week and get some goals because I want to be starting all the time; I want to be the main man.

“I’m a confident person so I’m sure that if I’m playing well and the team’s doing well then we’re going to get wins and the goals will come.”
