Shelvey takes centre-stage in Jack Mag
30th August 2015
Swansea's midfield maestro Jonjo Shelvey takes centre-stage in this weekend's Jack Magazine as Garry Monk's side host Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (4pm).
The English midfielder explains why he is leaving no stone unturned to ensure he fulfils his huge potential, while he also talks comedy, squad competition and taking on extra responsibility with the team.
"I've been looking at covering all angles and trying to get myself fitter," reveals Shelvey.
"I sat down with the manager, my dad and my agent to talk about things I needed to improve. A big thing was lasting the 90 minutes of a game.
"I feel that when I'm on it and fit, I can dictate and control a game. I have no worries about my ability, and I can go on the pitch and be fearless. If I try something that doesn't come off, I'll still try and do it again.
"But the manager, who has been spot on with me, wanted me to work that little bit harder and to get fitter.
"I had a good look at every game and thought to myself: I need to do this for me so that I can kick on with my career. I'm 23 years of age now, and I want to perform with more consistency."
