New signing Kemy Agustien is determined to get his promising career back on track at Swansea having overcome some tough times.
The midfielder, 24, finally penned a two-year deal with the Swans last week having recovered from the knee ligament injury sustained while on trial with the Championship club over the summer.
He arrives in Wales on the back of having been released by AZ Alkmaar as well as unwanted issues within his personal life, which he admits affected his performances on the pitch.
But all that is now in the past and he is determined to show what he is capable of at the Liberty Stadium. He told the South Wales Evening Post: "I have had some bad luck, but I have also done some stupid things - I know that. But I know I am not a wrong guy and I'm desperate to come back and prove that to everyone. Sometimes you do things and then afterwards you think `why did I do that?`.
"There have been some private things. Things were not going well for me and I didn't talk about them because I am not a person who likes to talk about things. I thought I could do it on my own, and maybe that's a big mistake I made.
"But everything is done now and I am happy to look forward and to concentrate on moving forward."
