Kemy Agustien has spoken about his recent problems in football and that he's now looking to put them behind him and concentrate on his future at Swansea City.
The 24 year-old midfielder has recently joined the club on a free transfer after his former club AZ Alkmaar allowed him to leave despite having another year on his contract.
The Dutchman arrived at the club on trial for the Holland Tour at the end of July and he impressed manager Brendan Rodgers, who was keen to sign him permanently. However, he suffered a nasty knee ligament in his final friendly match which has delayed a move to the Liberty Stadium until now.
Agustien has admitted to the local press that he has had off-the-field problems which have effected his footballing career:
'I have had some bad luck, but I have also done some stupid things — I know that,'
'But I know I am not a wrong guy and I'm desperate to come back and prove that to everyone.
'Sometimes you do things and then afterwards you think 'Why did I do that?'.
'There have been some private things. Things were not going well for me and I didn't talk about them because I am not a person who likes to talk about things. I thought I could do it on my own, and maybe that's a big mistake I made.
'But everything is done now and I am happy to look forward and to concentrate on moving forward.'
Agustien is now looking to put them all behind him now and is looking to make a fresh start in South Wales, he added:
'What happened privately affected my football, that's certain and I don't hide it,'
'I have also had some injuries and everything together has affected my football career.
'But fingers crossed, everything is going well now and I am happy to concentrate on improving at Swansea.'
'When I got injured in pre-season, he said straightaway that it would not affect my contract,'
'I was very impressed with that because it's very important for a manager to have trust and faith in you.'
