Alvaro Vazquez: Looking to get on goal trail

Vazquez is yet to open his account for the Swans after joining from Getafe on deadline day, but he is soon hoping his first goal will come.

"My first aim is to help the team, but I am a striker so of course I would like to score," he told the Swansea Evening Post.

"I haven't set any goal targets, hopefully I can get my first goal soon and move on from there.

"On and off the pitch I'm feeling really good. There are a lot of Spanish players here and I feel at home.

"This was the best offer I could have hoped for and I couldn't wait to accept when my agent told me about Swansea's interest. I said straight away 'let's go to Swansea.'

"I was really happy to come here and have a chance to play in the Premier League.

"I was really excited and I hope to do well."

Pochettino

Vazquez will face Mauricio Pochettino on Sunday, the Southampton manager who gave him his debut whilst at Espanyol.

"I have really good memories of playing under Mauricio and I'm really grateful that he gave me an opportunity at Espanyol," he said.

"His team always like to pressure the opposition and in attack they like to pass.

"I really enjoyed working under him, he is a good manager. His team will play in a similar way to Swansea and Southampton will be a tough game.

"I wish him all the luck, after the game of course, because I hope to be involved and continue trying my best for Swansea."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
