Wearing the No. 58 Jersey, many would be forgiven for thinking Gambian Modou Barrow would only play a bit part role for Swansea City this season.
This is not how things have panned out.
Barrow’s impressive goal against Bournemouth at the weekend saw Barrow become the first Gambian to score in the Premier League, and caps off a successful season for the Winger. Joining Swansea in 2014 the player who spent most of his developing years in Scandinavia has found himself in new manager Francesco Guidolin’s long term plans, and even qualifies for swedish citizenship. With speedy and skilful displays, the Gambian poses genuine competition on the Swansea flanks that has been lacking in recent years, with few names to mention beyond Wayne Routledge and Jefferson Montero.
Lets hope Barrow continues his rise and can help Swansea maintain their premier league survival.
With performances such as below it shouldn’t be too hard.
