DJIBRIL Cisse insists he’s well aware of the threat posed by Swansea City ahead of the opening day of the Barclays Premier League season tomorrow (Saturday).
After wooing crowds with their attractive brand of free-flowing football last term, City were affectionately dubbed ‘Swanselona’ by the national press.
An impressive 11th-placed finished led to boss Brendan Rodgers leaving for Liverpool this summer but, with Danish legend Michael Laudrup now at the helm, the Swans are all set
to go again this season.
Speaking exclusively to London Call-In – QPR’s official midweek online phone-in show – Cisse said: “Swansea finished in a good position in the Premier League last season.
“They’re a really strong team. We’re going to have to be really careful and show that we are at home.
“With the help of the fans, hopefully can be better than them and they leave with no points on Saturday.”
He added: “We’ve done really well in the transfer market this summer.
“We’ve bought some quality players – players with experience and ones that are going to bring something special to the team. Fair play to the board, the manager and all of the technical staff.
“I hope that we can show what we’re made of this season.”
