One Of The Best In Europe

The value of the Swans managing to hold onto Gylfi Sigurdsson in this transfer window was highlighted by Paul Clement this week not only because of his winning goal against Southampton but because the Swans boss believes he is one of the best in Europe.
Gylfi was on hand once again this week with the winning goal for the second game in a row as the Swans made it three wins out of four in January a run that has given us a real fighting chance of staying up at the end of the season.
As you would expect there was interest in Sigurdsson in the January transfer window but the Swans were not interested in selling the man who they gave a contract extension to back in the summer.
And having worked with him for a month then Clement knows exactly how valuable Sigurdsson is to the Swans and he now rates him amongst the best in Europe and he should know having worked with many of them during his career.
“He is a player, similar to Frank Lampard,” said Clement of his Icelandic star.
“He’s working all the time to be the best he can be.
“I’ve seen worse players than him playing at that level at Bayern and Chelsea. He’s a very good player.”
