The Swansea coach happy with the attitude shown by his players


Carlos Carvalhal, the Swansea City coach, spoke about his side’s remarkable draw with Leicester City as they managed to stay strong despite being 1-0 down after Jamie Vardy’s early opener.

Captain Federico Fernandez scored an equalizer after a strong and powerful header to gain a valuable point for the guests – and the Portuguese coach was, of course, very happy with the fact that the Swans managed to gain another unexpected success in the relegation battle that they have been ongoing.

The coach of the Welsh team spoke about this match as he said, according to Sky Sports:

“One point is important because the history of Swansea at Leicester is very, very bad. We achieve one point against a strong team.”

“A game that we did not start well and that was easy to explain because they surprised us with the players they had involved. We expected different players in the offensive dynamic and they created some problems that we did not solve in the first half.”

“They achieve one goal and could have achieved another and they were the team that created the most amount of chances against us since I arrived to Swansea.”

“But we started to do our game in the last seven to eight minutes of the first half, we started to move the ball better, we showed what we want in the second half.”

“And in the second half we correct the little things that make a big difference in the offensive dynamic and after this we broke the offensive line of Leicester. We stayed more with the ball, played more up the pitch, we shoot on goal and were more near the goal.”

In the end, he claimed that they were well-prepared:

“We analyse the opponents and know the weak and strong points so we knew we could achieve a goal from the set pieces in reality, and all teams have weak points which we explored in the second half.”
