Sousa Delighted To Beat Former Club QPR

Sousa Delighted To Beat Former Club QPR

Swansea City manager Paulo Sousa was delighted with his side's 2-0 win today against his former club QPR.

The 38 year-old believed his team played some of their best football of the season as goals from Mark Gower and Lee Trundle gave us the win against a team who ended the game with 9 men.

Sousa told the Official site:

'In some parts of the game we played our best football of the season,''

'I am so proud of them.

'It's always nice to beat your old side. As a player I always tended to win when I came up against my former teams; now I've done it as a manager.

'I was told Swansea hadn't beaten QPR in the league since 1955, so it was about time we changed that.

'It was an important win against a good quality team looking for promotion. QPR came with a lot of confidence on the back of some good results.

'It was a great show because my players understood the right moments to win the game. We kept possession well and chose the right moments to take advantage of their nine men.

'It is a great step for us and an important three points going into the international break.''


Mark Gower scored his first competitive goal since joining the Swans in 2007 and he was absolutely delighted to end that long goalless run.

Sousa added:

'It's all been a question of confidence with Mark,''

'We've always believed in him and we've been working hard with him because before he came here he scored a lot of goals with Southend.

'I hope this goal will help him believe in himself a lot more, because he's a quality player.''


De Vries made two awesome saves early in the second half to keep the scores level. QPR looked certain to score and if it wasn't for the Dutchman's quality we wouldn't have won today, and Sousa praised the shot-stopper.

'When we need Dorus he is always there for us,''

'They were two special saves at important moments in the game.''
