'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bessone Targets Regular Left Back Spot

Fede Bessone is looking to make the left back spot his own after starting in Saturday's 0-0 home draw against Blackpool.

Marcos Painter's performance was disappointing when he played in that position in last week's 1-0 win away at West Brom, he was replaced at half time by youngster Jazz Richards.

Bessone has struggled to get a regular run in the first team but his performance on Saturday was promising, with some fans thinking he was worthy of the man of the match award.

The Argentinian has got the ability to get forward well, just like fellow full back Angel Rangel but his defensive play can be inconsistent.

Bessone said:

'I would love to be the first-choice left-back,'

'But we have a big squad with very good players who want the same.

'We have to be at the top of our game when we get a chance because the other guys can come in and play instead.'


The 25 year-old made his debut for the club last season in a 4-0 thumping defeat away at Reading.

He added:

'Last season was very difficult,'

'I played in the Spanish second division before, but it is a different kind of football. Here, it is very hard. There's a big focus on set-pieces and teams play a lot of long ball.

'My first game last season was at Reading, and I was very sad with my performance.

'I was injured quite a bit too, so it was hard to be at my best when I was carrying an injury.

'This season is a new challenge for me. When I went home in the summer I knew this was a big chance for me.

'I've got stronger and have more confidence in myself. I'm grateful to the gaffer for giving me a chance.

'This is my best time at Swansea. We have a great family here and I'm happy to be part of it.'

Had a very good game against Blackpool, and so deserves to keep his place. Should Monk be fit, then he will lose out to Tate, and will then be a sub.
