Sigurdsson hopes to avoid Swansea boo boys


Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is hoping that the Swansea City boo-boys will not be out in force tomorrow.

Sigurdsson scored seven goals in 19 appearances for Swansea last season after joining on loan from German outfit Hoffenheim. He was set for a summer switch to the Liberty Stadium but after Brendan Rodgers departed for Liverpool, Spurs stepped in and snapped up the Icelandic international.

Also returning to the Liberty will be Steven Caulker who impressed during his season-long loan with the Swans, despite missing three months of the season through injury.

“I don’t know what kind of reception I’ll get, it’s down to the fans, but hopefully Steven and I will get a good one,” Sigurdsson said.

“It will be great to see the lads and go back there again because I enjoyed my time there. We need three points and they do as well, so it will be a really hard game.

“I didn’t know who was going to come in and what would happen (at Swansea) last summer, but what happened was obviously a good thing for the club because they’ve won a cup this season and they’re doing well in the league, so they’ve pushed on from last season.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Sigurdsson helped Swansea to stay in the Prem league last season. I can't imagine if the Swansea fans will thank Sig for that with booing to him. That would be really stupid.

    Players come and go, but there is no reason to show disrespect to players that have done good for your team, even if they only played half a season.

  2. Booing Sigurdsson will be very low by the Swansea fans. He was one of the main men, alongside Scott Sinclair, that helped keep Swansea in the premier league last season when so many people had so many doubts.
