Victory was for the fans, says Fer
10th April 2016
Leroy Fer dedicated Swansea's historic 1-0 victory over Chelsea on Saturday to the Jack Army.
The Swans secured their first-ever Barclays Premier League victory over the Blues, courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson's 11th goal of the season.
The Iceland international's 25th-minute volley was enough to inflict upon Chelsea their first defeat in 15 games, while the Swans had chances to add to their lead throughout an emphatic 90 minutes of football at the Liberty Stadium.
And Fer was delighted that Francesco Guideline's side could make history in front of their own fans.
"It was a tough game but it was great to win at home in front of the fans at the Liberty Stadium," said Fer. "We wanted to win this game for the supporters.
"Reaching the 40-point mark is crucial for us, and we played a very good game and deserved to win.
"In the last few weeks we have been playing better and made sure we have finished our chances.
"I think we had been unlucky in a lot of games this season; we performed well but didn't get the results.
"We need to look ahead now, keep doing what we are doing and see how many more teams we can catch to finish the season as high as we can."
