Swansea co-owner Van Zweden thrilled with Cup triumph

Swansea City co-owner John van Zweden was thrilled with their Capital One Cup triumph.

Van Zweden first bought into Swansea when they were in League Two.

"I was too nervous from the tension," he told Voetbal International. "Our first trophy in a hundred years. I estimated the probability that we'd win at eighty percent, only twenty percent that the other side would do so. Thankfully we slaughtered them. It was 0-5, but that says more about us and our good play than the weakness of Bradford. There is so much more respect for the opponent.

"They also defeated Arsenal and Aston Villa. "
