Gylfi Sigurdsson Vital to Swansea, Says Bob Bradley

Swansea City manager Bob Bradley has branded attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson as vital to the club.


The Icelandic international has been one of the club’s best players since the £10 million move from Tottenham a few years ago. He was signed by the Welsh outfit after he impressed a lot while on loan spell in the 2011-12 campaign. The investment in the 28-year-old has certainly not gone down the drain. In fact, it has been one of the best investments made by Swansea. Bradley has seen the player contribute 10 goals in his last 15 games either through goals or assists.

It is clear that if Swansea to remain in the Premier League, they have to keep Sigurdsson fit and performing at the top of his game throughout the campaign. The quality possessed by the player recently came to the limelight when Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed that it was a major mistake to let the player leave.

Spurs sold Sigurdsson just a few days after Pochettino came to the club as the new manager. Pochettino claimed that he did not have a major understanding of the player before being revealed about the decision to sell him to Swansea.

Andre Villas-Boas was the manager who brought him to Spurs, but it was Garry Monk brought him for a second time to the Liberty stadium."Gylfi has been terrific for us.I am sure there are many clubs that are taking notice. But certainly from our standpoint, we consider him important as we move forward. We are confident he is going to still be a part of our team as we get into the second half of the season and beyond. I believe that he is going to be with us. On the inside of our football club, we are confident he is going to be part of our team moving forward,” said Bradley.
