Swansea midfielder wants first team spot after car crash nightmare
Kemy Agustien has admitted that he has been out with injury because he was involved in a car crash.
The Swansea midfielder has been out with injury for nearly two months due to a calf tear, and has now revealed the injury was a consequence of a car accident that took place this September in his home country of Holland.
He admits that he believes he is fortunate to have survived the incident.
He is quoted to have said on website Wales Online: “It was bad – I am lucky to be alive. I was back home in Holland and driving my car but for no reason it slipped and hit a ditch. The car went into a cornfield and flipped over a couple of times. And I’ve been saying my prayers ever since. I thank God every day anyway but I had my angel with me when it happened. It went over twice so my head was pretty shaken up. The car was gone – I was so lucky it was only a calf tear. It could have been worse but it is in the past now.”
Kemy Agustien could get the opportunity to be part of Michael Laudrup’s team playing Newcastle in the Premier League this Saturday, and he hopes that this will turn out to be the case.
He said: “I am hoping to start at Newcastle. I had five minutes at a difficult time at Southampton but I think I did well in the position I played and in the small amount of time, so hopefully that can help.“I’ve been working hard, making sure if I get chance to get on the pitch I am ready to show what I can do. Everybody knows what my qualities are and I think I should be playing – that’s my opinion and everybody would say that about themselves. But I think I should be playing so I need to let my feet speak for me. Because when you get an opportunity you have to make an impact because there are lot of midfield players here and a lot of midfield players who are doing well.”
It was recently revealed that Ki Sung-Yeung may miss matches because of an injury to his hamstring, which was due to be assessed through a scan at the beginning of the week.
