Shefki Kuqi said he was disappointed to see his former club Crystal Palace go into administration in January.
Swansea City travel to Selhurst Park tomorrow to face Neil Warnock's side and Paulo Sousa and his team will be looking for a second win in 4 days.
Kuqi scored against the Swans for Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium last season when we lost 3-1. He was the club's top scorer last term with 10 goals.
He then left Selhurst Park in July 2009 to join German side Koblenz, where he netted 7 goals in 17 starts.
'It's disappointing and we don't want to see that happen to anybody,'
'You have to give lots of credit to Crystal Palace - the manager and players and everybody.
'It could have been easy to throw the towel in because they don't get paid.
'But they've kept playing and keep doing what they can do which is winning games.
'They've played four games since going into administration and only lost to Newcastle away.
'They are doing really well when it's tough for them.'
Kuqi also explained to BBC Sport why he left Palace as well as his decision to return to the Football League after a short spell in Germany:
'When I went there at first I was happy and enjoyed the football and scored seven goals in the first 10 games,'
'But, in the end, everything changed there. Nothing that was promised me happened and I didn't enjoy it.
'I felt the best thing to do was to come back here.
'The way Swansea move the ball, the way the players understand the movement of each other is really, really good and I'm very pleased and really proud to be part of this team.
'The manager has lots of belief and trust in the players and, when you get that, you always give 100 per cent.'
