Van Der Gun: Play Me Or I'm Leaving

Van Der Gun: Play Me Or I'm Leaving

Cedric Van Der Gun says he's ready to leave Swansea City unless he starts playing more games for the club.

The Dutch midfielder, who was signed by former boss Paulo Sousa last Summer has struggled to nail a regular first team place at the Liberty Stadium, and most of his appearances for the club have been in Cup competitions.

The former Ajax player arrived at Swansea City with much promise and potential after an impressive career record in the Dutch Leagues, but we've yet to see his true quality so far.

He's performed well here and there, but he's yet to show the consistently needed to consider him as a first team regular, plus he's going to find it difficult competing with Nathan Dyer and Scott Sinclair for a starting place on the wing.

Van Der Gun admits he's finding it very frustrating not to be playing regularly, and he could quit if he's not more involved in Brendan Rodgers' first team plans:

'I want to play, and if I don't play I want to play somewhere else,'

'I'm a professional football player, I come from abroad and the only reason I'm here is to play football.

'I'm really serious when I say, every minute I don't play I'm not happy.

'I believe this team has got great quality so we can have success this year, but I want to be a part of that — that's the most important thing for me.

'I've told my agent to look around, because if there's a good opportunity, I'll go.

'I want to stay in the English League because I like it, but you have to be realistic and if something else comes in, no problem.

'I'm training well and I'm playing well so it's frustrating, and the manager knows I'm not happy so it's no surprise.

'I feel very good about the way I'm playing and I'm getting more minutes, but in the end only one thing is important, I want to play in the first XI.'


Van Der Gun also admitted that he's not going to get a place on the wing, but is willing to compete for another place in the team:

'I feel physically fit, I feel I'm in good form and I can play in different positions,'

'It depends where the gaffer needs me and as long as Scott is doing really well, I'm probably not going to start as a winger, so I need to focus on somewhere else.

'I'm not someone who just sits on the bench, I'm not happy with that.

'The manager has said to me, 'you're playing well and you're training well', so we'll have to see how many minutes I play.

'We'll have to see where it gets me.'


Swansea City fans won't respect his recent outburst to the media about his frustration and his willingness to leave and it wouldn't be a surprise if he was to go when the transfer window opens in January.
