Silverware the target for Swans hitman

New signing Fernando Llorente says his two goals at Swansea are to win a trophy and to play well enough to earn a recall for Spain.

The Spaniard completed his move to the Liberty Stadium on Friday and wasted little time in getting to know his new team mates, making his debut less than 24 hours later in Swansea’s friendly win over Rennes.

Lorente now looks set to start for the Welsh side when they face Premier League newboys Burnley this weekend and the 31-year-old has been tipped to be a big success by his manager Francesco Guidolin.

The World Cup winner has now set himself the goal of firing the Liberty Stadium club to a major trophy and hopes by playing regularly for Swansea he can force his way back into the Spain set-up having missed out on selection for Euro 2016.

“I think it is possible to win one of the cups. We know winning the Premier League is a very difficult competition with a lot of teams at a high level but we want to do well,” he said.

“I need to work hard because I have not played for a few months and this is the important thing, to work and work and work in training to make sure I play very well.

“I need to do it now because the league starts next week and I would also like to get back into the national side.

“I know that I will need to play well for Swansea all season if I want to do that. I would like to return to play for Spain, it would be a very special thing for me.”
