Dorus De Vries says it was a 'bitter blow' to open yet another season with a defeat, as the Swans lost 2-0 away at Hull City yesterday afternoon.
The Dutch goalkeeper told the club's Swan Player service that it was disappointing to lose yet again on opening day, as De Vries is still yet to experience a first day win in his 4th season at the club.
Swansea City made a good start and had good possession according to De Vries, but after conceding an "amazing first goal" Hull City ended the first half strongly.
Any chance of a comeback for us looked less likely in the second half as we conceded a second just 5 minutes after the restart. De Vries was at fault for failing to deal with a corner, and Ashbee took full advantage of the error by finding the net.
De Vries explained the goal to Swans Player, and said he tried to "steal in a couple of yards to go forward to help the guys out" but he didn't expect the cross to go to the far post, after the Tigers had two chances from corners aimed at the near post.
The Dutchman praised John Bostock for his wonder goal from 30 yards midway through the first half, saying as soon as he struck he hoped it was going wide, as there was nothing he could do to stop it from flying into the top corner.
De Vries was also asked in his interview about how much has the loss of Leon Britton affected the team following his move to Sheffield United. While he admits it's a "major loss", he believes the squad has the players to replace him, and mentioned Jordi Lopez and potential new signing Kemy Agustien, who has had a successful trial at Swansea City.
