Shechter joined on a season-long loan deal from Kaiserslautern last August, and made 19 appearances for the Swans under Michael Laudrup.

Unfortunately, the Israel international could only find the net on one occasion as Swansea beat Wigan in May, but he still thanked the club for allowing him the opportunity to win a trophy at Wembley.

"Since the day I arrived, I have been treated so well. It helps you settle so much better when you arrive at a new club like this," Shechter told swanseacity.net

"I've enjoyed being part of this squad. We won the cup, finished ninth in the Premier League - it has been an amazing season.

"It was great for me to be part of the lap of honour too. It was a special day. I wanted to show respect to the supporters because they have been behind the team - and myself - all season, no matter what the result.

"If we win, draw or lose - it doesn't matter because they always make so much noise and get behind the team.

"The season has been amazing for the club and the fans, and I have had an amazing time at Swansea too."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
