Sigurdsson's "unbelievable" journey
3rd October 2015
Swansea City's Icelandic talisman Gylfi Sigurdsson goes on record in this weekend's Jack Magazine to discuss his "unbelievable" journey from a cold and wet night at Accrington Stanley to helping his country make history.
In time for Swansea's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (4pm), Sigurdsson speaks to the official matchday magazine about etching his name into history, playing in all four English divisions and his love of travelling.
"One per cent of the population? It's just mad," laughs Sigurdsson when reminded that 3,000 of his countrymen made the journey to Eindhoven to watch their nation send shockwaves across Europe.
"For us to have 3,000 people supporting us in Holland was unbelievable. It doesn't seem a lot, but when I started playing for Iceland, we probably had one or two fans for away games, so to have 3,000 there was incredible.
"I know that a big group of the fans went to Copenhagen first for a couple of days and were pretty much just having a party up until the game. It must have been a good week for them!
"For us, it was a special night, and I don't think any of the players will forget it."
Elsewhere in Saturday's matchday magazine, we get to know a little bit more about Swans starlet Dan Jefferies in our Under-18s feature, while U21 winger Daniel James chats about his decision to move to Wales, his first year in Swansea and his dreams of playing for Garry Monk's first-team.
Meanwhile, former Swan and Spurs defender Paul Price speaks to Jack Magazine about his time at both clubs, The Vaccines bassist Arni Arnason goes under the spotlight in 'A Famous Face', and Federico Fernandez talks Messi and co. in 'Six of the Best'.
And if that wasn't enough for you, we have plenty more insightful and entertaining features to whet your appetite right up until kick-off!
Jack Magazine is available for just £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.
