Bafetimbi Gomis reveals unhappiness at Swansea season

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis is unhappy with his contribution in an impressive season which has seen the club finish eighth in the Premier League.

Despite finishing in the top-half of the table under Garry Monk, Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis is unhappy with his contribution.

The French forward has scored 10 goals to help achieve a lofty standing in the top-flight and set a new points record for the club, but Gomis believes he could have done better after slotting home two goals in his last two games following an injury-enforced break on the sidelines.

"I am very happy to score two goals in two games since my return from injury, but I'm not happy with ten goals this season," Gomis told talkSPORT.

"Swansea bought me to score more goals, and I believe there is more to come from me next season.

"It was hard to settle when I first came here as I didn't speak English, which made it difficult to communicate and to understand different ways of doing things.

"But with the help of the coach and my team-mates, little by little I have found my style of play here in England.

The 29-year-old added: "I am very happy to have started scoring goals. Next season I hope to score more goals and help my club.

"I will work hard over the summer and come back and give my best."

Some footballers find it more difficult than others when moving to a different country and competing in the top-flight. Even at top clubs, we have seen players like Nuri Sahin and Shinji Kagawa come to England and fail to impress.

That may not be the situation for Gomis, who appears determined to set his goalscoring record straight next season for Swansea and contribute on a more frequent basis. He is speaking in a manner you would want to see from a centre forward, because ticking over is never enough when your job is scoring goals.

The Swans will need Gomis firing on all cylinders for the next Premier League campaign if they are going to finish in such a strong position again.
