Andrea Orlandi was delighted to score his first Swansea City goal on Saturday in the 2-0 win against Reading.
The left winger showed a lot of emotion after his late goal and revealed why that was to the Evening Post:
|'I just cried after the goal because I've suffered a lot since I first came here. I think I deserved it,' |
'Only me and my girlfriend know how much I have suffered because I've been at home not playing and with injury problems.
'But now I'm playing, I feel really good and my team-mates have helped me a lot. I'm very grateful to them and I want to say thank you to them.
'It was my first goal for Swansea and it was an important goal for us.
'I needed a goal like that. To come on in a difficult game and score to make it 2-0 against a good team like Reading is unbelievable for me.'
|'It has been really frustrating. I have to say that maybe I wasn't mentally prepared for British football, but now I am,' |
'The gaffer knew I was a good player, but Mark Gower and Tom Butler have been playing well.
'Now I've taken my chance in the cup and against Reading. I'm working hard and hopefully the results will come.'
'The loss at Reading was probably our worst performance of the season. I don't want to say vengeance, but we wanted to get our own back and we have demonstrated that maybe we are the better side,'
'We've played against all the teams now. We've played a lot better than Reading and Birmingham and if Jas (Jason Scotland) keeps scoring and we keep playing well I think we can get into the play-offs.'
