Paloschi: I need to repay Swansea's trust

Cape Town - New Swansea City striker Alberto Paloschi is determined to repay the faith put in him by the struggling Welsh club.

The Swans find themselves worrying about relegation, with last weekend's defeat to Southampton meaning they are just three points above the drop zone.

The 26-year-old Italian was signed from Chievo Verona by new Swans boss Francesco Guidolin in the hope that the former Milan prodigy will boost their survival chances, and he is now looking to prove his countryman right.

"I am a striker who always gives his all," he told Inside Futbol. "This is my strength and it has helped me since I took my first steps into professional football at Milan.

"Milan will always remain the club who developed me into a man and will always have a special place in my heart. However, I can't forget who trusted me, investing their money and giving me a chance.

"I have always felt a moral obligation to pay back the people who have shown their faith in me. It happened in the past with Chievo and today with Swansea."

That means that Paloschi will be eager to start in Swansea's next Premier League match against title-chasing Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, 28 February.
