Agustien Patiently Waits For First Team Chance

Agustien Patiently Waits For First Team Chance

Kemy Agustien says it's been frustrating not playing first team football but remains hopeful he'll get his chance over the festive period.

The Dutch midfielder admitted that he has changed his attitude in reaction to not being in the first team. The former under-21 Dutch international says he has learnt from his mistakes and that he 'won't be a problem for the manager'.

Agustien seems to be much more patient and understanding when he's not playing regular first team football, even though, arguably, he deserves to starting.

So far the 24 year-old has made just one start in the Championship, but he's hoping he gets more chances over the busy Christmas period.

'The players in the team have done a very good job and I think the manager has wanted to keep confidence in the players and consistency in the side,'

'I've worked very hard to come back from injury but I've had to watch a lot from the bench.

'I have not played as much as I would have liked, so it has been frustrating.

'I think I've done a good job when I've come off the bench, but I am still waiting to get more starts.

'But I won't be a problem for the manager. I've learned from my mistakes in the past. A few things happened then that made me act differently now.

'I think that is the best way because I speak regularly with the manager and I understand his way of thinking.

'He has told me it is going to be a busy Christmas period and he will need me during it, so that's a good sign for me.

'The only thing I can do is keep my mouth shut, keep my head up and keep working hard for the club because there are good times ahead.'


Agustien first impressed when he was on trial during the Holland Tour at the end of July, but a knee ligament injury meant he was unable to complete a permanent signing at the Liberty Stadium until September.

He was very thankful for the club during his injury and he added:

'The club were great with me during my injury and I want to thank them for that,'

'But the supporters have waited for a long time to see what I can do, and now it's time to show them I'm a good player.

'I know I have the quality to play and, even if it's one minute or 90 minutes, I will give everything.

'I am not an arrogant man at all, but I have confidence in myself.

'If I am fit, I can bring some extra quality to the team. But I will wait for my chance, and when that comes I have to take it.

'It is a very good place for me to play. At Swansea, I can play in any part of the midfield three.

'With the system we play I can sit as the holding player with the knowledge that I can go forward and attack.

'I can play as the attacking player too — wherever the manager wants me, I am comfortable in any of the positions.

'All I am waiting for now is a chance.'

He's a much better player than Orlandi and even Gower isn't doing enough lately. We'd much better equipped for games with Agustien playing in the centre
