Swansea City manager Garry Monk has praised two qualities of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson in Wales Online.
Monk has admitted that the Swans have missed the former Tottenham man, after he found himself out of the team following his sending off during the club’s FA Cup defeat at the hands of Blackburn.
“We have missed Gylfi - He has been excellent. He is a hungry player, his work-rate for the team has been incredible, and that can only be a good thing for us when he comes back,” said Monk.
Swansea’s next league game comes against Manchester United at home this weekend and Sigurdsson could come back into the team.
It’s a change that the manager will more than likely makes because the club’s recent run of results has not been impressive.
Swansea have one win in their last six games and the midfielder’s return could certainly galvanise the midfield of the team.
He injects quality in possession as well as Premier League experience across the middle of the side.
The only thing that Monk has to make decisions over is whether he’s in the right frame of mind after being sent off and how match fit he is.
The first issue shouldn’t be a problem but it may be a better idea for the manager to reintroduce him into the team off of the bench.
However Monk handles his return, Swansea will be a better side when he’s back in the line-up.
