Trundle Looking Forward To Fond Farewell

Trundle Looking Forward To Fond Farewell

Former Swansea striker Lee Trundle has revealed he is looking forward to saying a proper goodbye to the Jack Army when the Swans visit Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Trundle, who scored more than 20 goals in each of his four seasons as a Swan, was a fans favourite during his time in South Wales.

But eventually the lure of playing at a higher level was too much and he made the short trip across the border to link up with Gary Johnson's Bristol City.

The £1 million move took place in pre - season and Trundle has regretted never having the chance to say farewell to the fans that meant so much to him.

The popular Scouser spoke to BBC Sport:

'I never got a chance to say goodbye because it (the move) was done pre-season.'

'Hopefully I will get a good reception because Swansea is a club that I love and the fans meant a big part for me.'

'One hundred per cent, there's no way that I'd ever celebrate if I scored.'

'As a professional footballer, you have to do a job, but that doesn't stop you having feelings.'

'I love Swansea City as a club so there's no way that I'd rub it in to the fans that have meant so much to me.'

Injuries to regular strikers Dele Adebola and Stern John could see Trundle make only his fifth start of the season.
