Ryder Cup hero Sergio Garcia has become the newest member of the Jack Army – and hopes to swing by for his first Swans game this weekend.
The Spaniard made a flying visit to Swansea yesterday as he watched the club’s training session in Llandarcy.
Fresh from his heroics in helping Europe beat America in Chicago to win the Ryder Cup in what was one of the greatest sporting comebacks, Garcia headed to South West Wales to meet up with Swans star Pablo Hernandez, who is the partner of his sister.
Garcia was introduced to the players and posed for pictures with the keen golf fans within the squad.
And he’s hoping to make his first visit to the Liberty on Saturday when the Swans host Reading in the Premier League.
"We came straight from the Ryder Cup to Swansea," said Garcia. "Pablo is my sister's boyfriend so I came in with my parents to see them.
"We wanted to check the place out a little bit and to see my little nephew as well.
"It's my first time in Swansea, but I am a big football fan and obviously I'm a Swansea City fan now that Pablo is playing here.
"I follow the Spanish league more, but I do watch some English football.
"I saw Swansea play against Everton a couple of weeks ago — I was in Atlanta but I was able to watch the game.
"I have to do some things in Switzerland and Germany this week, but I hope to fly back in on Saturday morning to see the game against Reading."
Swansea City can confirm that Ryland Morgans, head of Sports Science, has left the club this week to develop his career elsewhere.
Morgans has been with the club for the last two-and-a-half years and Swansea City would like to thank him for his efforts during that time and wish him well in his future career.
