''I'm No Hero'' Declares Bauza

''I'm No Hero'' Declares Bauza

Swansea City striker Guillem Bauza says he's no hero after scoring the 2 goals that clinched us promotion to the Championship.

The Spaniard netted a brace in the final 2 minutes of the first half at Gillingham to give us a 2-1 win and promotion.

Despite scoring both goals in the victory, Bauza remained modest afterwards and told the Western Mail:

"I`m not the hero, this was a team thing," he explained. "I`m just happy to be a part of what we have done together.

"I want to be a part of Swansea and enjoy this promotion with the fans and other players. I`m just so happy we have been able to finish the job.

"When the final whistle blew, I just jumped up off the bench and looked at the stand to see all the fans jumping and celebrating. I just wanted to join in with them.

"It`s one of the best feelings I have ever had in my footballing life. Now I want to keep having more of those experiences."

"Getting two goals makes me very happy," he said. "This was my chance to show what I can do and I think I grabbed it with both hands.

"The first goal was all about belief. Sometimes when someone challenges the keeper, the referee gives a foul, but I kept believing and I got my reward.

"I`m really pleased with the second one. I chested it down well and it was a good finish.

"It was the right time to score as well. It let us go into the dressing room for half-time knowing we had a good chance to get promoted.

"I like to work hard for the team and I like to do a job for the gaffer. It was tough for me, but I did my best out there.

"After being out of the team for a while it`s hard to come back in and be at your best. I think I did well though."


'Bussy' is out of contract this Summer but he thinks there'll be no problems in extending his stay in South Wales.

He added:

"I want to be in Swansea next year and I think the club wants me here so I don`t think there are going to be any problems,"

"I want to stay, but I haven`t signed anything yet. Hopefully, it`s just a matter of time.

"Getting promotion is a bit weird for me because when I first game here I asked Roberto, 'What do you want to do?` He then said to me, 'We just want to get promoted.`

"That one of the main reasons I came to this club. And now it has happened.

"We are exactly where we want to be - in the Championship. Now it all starts again in a new life."


You may not think so Bauza, but you, the rest of the team and Martinez are all heroes in the fans' eyes!
