Sinclair Aims To Provide Goals & Assists

Sinclair Aims To Provide Goals & Assists

Scott Sinclair is aiming to provide Swansea City with goals and assists following his £500,000 move from Chelsea this week.

The Swans have struggled for goals and the 21 year-old winger, who is also capable of playing in a more forward role, seems like the ideal signing to help give us more attacking quality.

Sinclair's arrival yesterday has been a massive boost which has given fans a lot of optimism ahead of Saturday's first home game of the season against Preston North End.

Sinclair worked with Brendan Rodgers when the Swans boss was Youth Team Manager at Chelsea and the winger said that he was big influence in his decision to join the club:

'The manager played a big part in me coming here because I know he has a lot of qualities after playing for him at Chelsea,'

'He has worked under Jose Mourinho, who is obviously one of the best managers in the world.

'He has learned from one of the best and he knows football inside out, so it's good to be playing under him again. Hopefully, I can bring some goals to the team as well as some flair. We are a great passing team. That's my kind of football and I'm confident I can score goals in the Championship.

'Everyone keeps saying that the goals were a bit of a problem last season, but the great thing is that Swansea keep possession so well.

'I will try to be direct and to create chances. I want to score goals and provide assists, and I believe I can do that.'

Sinclair had very limited opportunities at Chelsea, and he's now looking forward to playing regular football:

'It's time for me to come and play games,'

'Everyone wants to play in the Premier League, but I want to play football. I have played 10 minutes here and there at Chelsea, but I've got to the stage where I want to play every week.

'I want to enjoy my football and I want to be happy. It's quite distressing when you are not playing and your chances are limited at one of the biggest clubs.

'Hopefully I can settle down at Swansea and be happy playing every week.'

Sinclair also hopes that he can help the team push for promotion to the Premiership, but he's not predicting anything too soon for the season ahead:

'I have just got to concentrate on taking every training session and every game as they come,'

'But maybe if you ask me again in mid-season, we can see where we are.

'Last season the lads only missed out on the play-offs by one goal, so hopefully I can bring some goals and help the team go up.'
