Team Is 'Very, Very Happy' After Cardiff City Win

Team Is 'Very, Very Happy' After Cardiff City Win

Swansea City midfielder Pablo Hernandez said the team was 'very, very happy' after thrashing Cardiff City 3-0 on Saturday.

In Garry Monk's first game as head coach following Laudrup's sacking just a few days previously, the Swans produced a stunning performance - full of qualities that have been missing in recent months.

After the game, Monk revealed that he was in two minds whether to start Emnes or Hernandez behind lone striker Bony. He decided with loanee Emnes, but Hernandez replaced him at the start of the second half, and within two minutes created the opening goal, with a stunning through ball for Routledge to finish past Marshall.

He also delivered the cross for Bony to make it 3-0 to the Swans.

You could arguably say that it was Hernandez's best game since his stunning display against West Brom last season, as he showed the attacking qualities that he has. He's always been an inconsistent performer since arriving from Valencia, but his stats for key passes and assists is rather impressive.

After the 3-0 win, Hernandez said:

'I think it's very important,"

"For the club and for the fans, beating Cardiff is unbelievable.

"It was the perfect game for us. The team is very, very happy because this victory is very important for the confidence with three away games coming up.

"It hasn't been an easy week, but the team will have confidence after this. The three points are very important."

"I didn't start today, but in the second-half I wanted to play well for the new coach.

"Before the game, the manager spoke with me about playing behind the striker, and to get two assists was very important for my confidence.

"I was happy to be able to help the team."


Swansea City now need to take this confidence into their next important league game, as they travel to Stoke City on Wednesday night. The win puts the Swans up to 10th, but they're still only 4 points from the bottom three so it'll be vital to get at least a point against a side below them in the table.
