Swansea’s Lopez keen on facing QPR

Swansea City’s Jordi Lopez hopes he is in the squad to face QPR at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.

The Spaniard joined the Swans in July after a short stint with QPR and has admitted that this fixture was one he looked at closely when he signed.

“It was the first game I looked for when the fixtures came out,'' he told Swansea’s official website.

“I marked it down on the calendar straight away. I'm really looking forward to it.

“The three or four months I spent at QPR were really positive for me. They gave me the opportunity to play in English football and I will always be grateful to them for that.

“I had the opportunity to stay there, but I felt it was a better opportunity for me to come to Swansea and work with Paulo again.

“When Paulo spoke to me about the project he had at Swansea City, I liked what he had to say. It felt like the right move for me.''

Lopez missed the midweek clash at Doncaster Rovers after picking up two yellows against Sheffield United last weekend.
