Narsingh enjoying position switch at Swansea

Swansea

Luciano Narsingh says he is relishing his new role at Swansea City after being deployed as a right wing-back on Saturday.

Netherlands international Narsingh, predominantly a winger, was moved to right wing-back position by manager Carlos Varvalhal for the Premier League clash against Everton at the Liberty Stadium.

The 27-year-old, who arrived at the Welsh outfit in January 2017 for a reported £4million, impressed in the new role before he was substituted at half-time after picking up an ankle injury.

Swansea, who are five points clear of the relegation zone, are hopeful the injury is not as bad as first feared and they will find out the extent of the issue on Monday after medical tests have been completed.

Narsingh says he enjoyed playing in a different position and is thankful to the faith shown in him by the gaffer.

‘The gaffer told me to play on the line and one-on-one. It was a role I enjoyed and he gave me a lot of confidence,’ he told reporters. ‘He said if I lose the ball that it doesn’t matter – keep going. That really helped me.

‘I managed to get into the one-on-one situation on a few occasions and I beat my man and put the cross in. Wing-back is a different role for me although I did play there in the cup. But I just want to give everything to the team and try to help us as much as I can.’
