Arsenal news: Forward announces why he made very late transfer move
Charles Sagoe Jr has revealed how hearing head coach Luke Williams’ plans for Swansea City convinced him to join the club on loan from ARSENAL FC.
The Arsenal forward has made the move to the Swans on loan for the remainder of the season, and will wear the number 24 shirt in SA1.
There were other options on the table for the promising young player but, after speaking to Swansea boss Williams, his mind was made up.
“I’m really excited to get going. I’m glad the deal has got over the line and I can’t wait to get out on the pitch,” said Sagoe Jr.
“I spoke to the manager and he told me that the philosophy is very possession-based, and the wingers are integral to how Swansea play.
“He wants them to be direct and get lots of crosses into the box, create chances for the team. That’s my game really, creating chances and getting opportunities to score.
“As a winger, I like to get on the ball a lot and help the team as much as I can.
“I don’t mind which side I play. Wherever the manager plays me, I’ll just give it my all. I’ll always put in 110 per cent in everything, whether I’m on the left or the right. I don’t mind, I’ll just give it my all.
“I am comfortable off both feet, which is one of my strengths, I’m quite confident coming in on my weaker foot or having the option to go on my stronger foot. I think it’s something I have in my locker and I can produce it on the pitch.
“I like to be very direct and get at my opponents, get lots of shots off and get lots of crosses into the box. I just try to cause trouble for the opponents.
“I’ll bring a lot of energy to the pitch, and show my talent.
“When I had that conversation with the manager, it put a smile on my face. I just want to help us win as many games as possible and help us climb the table.”
