Gylfi Sigurdsson scored one of Swansea City’s goals in a failed comeback bid against Arsenal on Saturday.

The 3-2 match, of course, was Bob Bradley’s first in charge of the Welsh unit, and naturally the Icelandic midfielder proffered comments on the first American boss in Premier League history.

Sigurdsson, 27, says training sessions are a lot tougher under Bradley than they were under Francesco Guidolin, and that the former USMNT manager urged his team to push forward.

From the BBC:

“The new manager wanted us to play on the front foot and I think we did that but we gave them too much respect.

“The boys really like the new boss and our training sessions are very tough. I’m not worried about my fitness. I’m fit. We will get fitter if we aren’t fit enough”.

The loss pushes Swansea into the relegation zone, though a pair of interesting fixtures against Watford and Stoke City await the Swans.
