Palace loanee Ince unsurprised at stick from Swansea fans
Crystal Palace winger Tom Ince admits he expected to be jeered at the Liberty Stadium after snubbing Swansea City for a loan move to Palace from Championship Blackpool. The England U21 international lasted just 45 minutes as his team picked up a battling 1-1 draw in South Wales.
He said in the Croydon Advertiser: "You have to expect that, and any footballer would get it from any club, it's not just me, it happens all the time.
"As a footballer you have to deal with it all the time and zone out and concentrate on what you do on the pitch.
"Swansea is a fantastic club with some fantastic players. I expected to come here and get boos, it's part and parcel of being a footballer.
"When you're linked with Swansea, I said to the players you have to expect that, I'm not the only one to receive a reception like I did, it happens every week.
"You take it on the chin, you're a footballer and all you do is concentrate on what you do on the pitch."
