Jordi Lopez Wants To Leave Swansea In January

Jordi Lopez Wants To Leave Swansea In January

Jordi Lopez has admitted that he wants to leave Swansea City in January to play first-team football.

The Spanish midfielder has struggled to nail down a regular team role at the Liberty Stadium since former boss Paulo Sousa signed him for free in 2009.

The 29 year-old hasn't been considered for the first team by current boss Brendan Rodgers and it would be best for all concerned if he left to free up some much needed wage funds to make much-needed signings in the New Year.

Lopez said:

'I am only 29 and I can't be just going along every week in training and not making the squad,'

'I have around three years at my best to play and I'm losing time here. When you're not playing it is difficult to be happy.

'I think it's going to be very difficult for me to get an opportunity now because the season has moved on a lot.

'I would like to move in January because I want to play — and I can't see that happening here.

'I'm speaking to my agent already. I've also spoken to the chairman about my situation and I expect to move on.'


Lopez also said that there wasn't any more he could do to work his way into the side:

'I don't really understand my situation. I don't think I can do much more to get into the team,'

'I have done everything asked of me in training, but I don't get an opportunity.

'When I have played, it has only been a game here or there. But in that situation it is difficult to do your best and find form.

'The last time I played was against Derby (in October) and I did very well. After that, I was out again for no reason. Nothing was said to me.

'Myself and the manager haven't spoken about it.

'I am experienced in football and I know when someone doesn't rate you.

'I'm not sure if other clubs have shown an interest yet, but that is something my agent will deal with.

'It doesn't matter to me whether I play here or in Spain. Playing football every week is my priority.'

I agree that Lopez hasn't had a fair crack of the whip, neither has Augusten--Rodgers has his favourites ---Gower for one--never gets dropped--Prattley has been poor too but he gets dropped. I'm losing patience with Rodgers, several bad performances from the team and yet he keeps playing the same players week in week out. At this rate we'll be mid table by February.

To be fair, he did play a few games at the beginning of the season and didnt impress at all so theres no suprise he'll end up leaving. I agree that Agustien should be playing more with his strength and power. Gower has been one of our best players this season so I dont know why hes getting all he critcism (albeit he has had a couple of bad performances lately). Its Orlandi who has been the weak link and gave the goal away on Saturday.

I dont see Gower getting all the criticism? Agustien needs to play instead of Orlandi

Tjhe point is that Gower and Orlandi are wide players--that's what they have been throughout their careers yet Rodgers and Sousa before insist on playing them as central midfielders. They are both too lightweight and Allen in particular has a huge workload when they play. Horses for courses I say--play Augustien where he belongs in central midfield then rotate the other 3 or 4 round him.
