Swansea man apologises to fans
Jonjo Shelvey has apologised to the fans after his disappointing performance against his former club Liverpool.
Swansea and Liverpool battled on Monday evening in a game which Jonjo Shelvey would like to forget despite scoring in the 2-2 draw against the Merseyside team.
Shelvey told SkySports that he is deeply sorry for the two mistakes which led to both of the Liverpool goals.
The 21 year old sealed a permanent move to the Welsh side early this summer from Liverpool and has featured in every Premier League game this season.
The Englishman was at fault for the Daniel Sturridge and Victor Moses goals.
He accidentaly set up Sturridge for his fourth goal of the season and then a poor pass from him set up Victor Moses 10 minutes before half time.
However, Michu saved the day for the Swansea and Shelvey after he tied the game just after the hour mark.
Swansea will travel to spain on Thursday as they are set to play Valencia in their first Europa League group stage game.
They will then travel to Crystal Palace at the weekend and will hope a win there will give them the momentum in the next few games so they can climb the table.
Shelvey told SkySports that he felt that Swansea deserved more from that game as he thought they played tremendously well.
He praised Swansea’s recovery but insisted that he was disappointed with his two mistakes that could have cost Swansea the game.
However, he stated that he is mistake is just part and parcel of football and the best players move on from it and don’t go hiding.
“I just want to say sorry to the Swansea fans for the two bad mistakes that have gifted Liverpool a draw,” Shelvey told Sky Sports.
“I really thought we deserved more than that. It started tremendously, getting the goal, but then two poor mistakes.
“I showed a bit of character to keep getting on the ball, and I set the next goal up, but I’m still disappointed.
“I didn’t really want to celebrate [after scoring] because I’ve huge respect for the Liverpool fans and I loved every minute being there, but it’s hard to hide your emotions. Two minutes later, I give them a goal. It was good to score, but I can’t stop thinking about the two mistakes.
“You want to go into a hole where no-one can see you. Football is about coming back from things like that and it has happened to great players.
“It’s just a horrible feeling, I don’t want to wish it on anyone, even your worst enemy, but that’s football.”
