Swansea midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson insists he is happy with life under new manager Paul Clement, but would one day want to play for a big club.
Clement was assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich before moving to England, having also played a similar role at Real Madrid and Chelsea.
The new Swansea boss recently said that the midfielder is capable of playing for such a side – comments that went down well with the player.
“Yes, that’s of course, very flattering,” Sigurdsson told Goal while on international duty. “Maybe he was just trying to give me confidence. Of course, it would be a dream to play for one of these big clubs.
“Hopefully if I continue doing well for Swansea and Iceland then in the near future, I can play in a big club. I am enjoying being one of the senior players, though.
“We may be in a tough spot, but I am kind of enjoying the pressure of that. I am trying to make the most of that and help the team to get three points every week.”
“The results in the last couple of games haven’t been as good as we would have hoped, losing two very important matches. There’s still a long way to go,” he said.
“If you look at the bigger picture, with where we were at Christmas and where we are at the moment, we have made a big step towards safety but, of course, it’s a really tough season with a lot more football to be played.
“Hopefully we can continue the good work that we have been doing over the last six or seven weeks and we stay up. Clement has been fantastic, you can tell that there’s a reason why he has been at these big clubs that he has been at.
“He is very organised. His training sessions are fantastic. He is very positive and he is very good man-to-man with the players. The players have confidence in him and all together it feels like a good combination.”
