Van Der Gun Unsure On Swansea City Future

Van Der Gun Unsure On Swansea City Future

Cedric Van Der Gun says he is still unsure on his Swansea City future.

The Dutch midfielder has struggled to get many games since joining in 2009 under former boss Paulo Sousa, and last year he said he'd consider leaving if he wasn't more involved in the first team.

Van Der Gun made his first start on Saturday since facing Wigan in the Carling Cup last October, and he was on the scoresheet as the Swans enjoyed a 4-0 FA Cup win against Colchester United.

The 31 year-old said he was pleased to be involved again after patiently waiting for his chance:

'I'll just wait and see what happens,'

'For starters, I was just really happy to play on Saturday.

'Obviously every player wants to play. I don't think that's strange and I'm the same.

'I know my situation, I haven't been playing a lot of football lately and I've had my talks with the manager as well.

'All I can say is that when I play I'll do the best I can — that's the only thing you can do as a player.

'It's January and the transfer window is open so we'll have to see what happens.

'The manager knows I want to play. It's obvious and I think every player feels that way, I'm no different.'


Van Der Gun says despite scoring quite often when he's been involved (4 goals this season), he admitted he's not playing his best football:

'After not playing for a while, you can't wait to get out on the pitch again,'

'On Saturday I got an opportunity so I'm quite happy.

'I haven't been playing a lot this season, a couple of times as sub and a few starts.

'But I've got some goals so I'm happy about that.

'The stats are good, but to tell you the truth I don't think I'm playing my best football.

'In the moments that I have played this season, I'm quite satisfied with what I've shown.

'The manager is the one that decides who's playing and I can only do my best and hope I'll be in the squad and get some minutes.

'I'm satisfied with my performance, but it's not like that was my best game ever.'
