Brandy Hails Biggest Goal Of Career

The on-loan Manchester United striker scored the winner just five minutes from time against Oldham on Saturday and showed his delight in style with an acrobatic celebration in front of the South and West stands.  It was his second goal of the loan spell but his first at the Liberty – the other came in the 4-0 rout of Doncaster ten days ago.

And Brandy has revealed that he only uses that celebration on special occasions and that he had to do it after grabbing the most important goal of his career “I’ve been doing back-flips since I was a kid,” Brandy said, “but that’s the biggest crowd I’ve ever done them in front of.

“I have done them to celebrate a goal on special occasions in the past, like when I scored for United in the opening game of the World Under-20 Championships against Porto.

“I did them again here because that’s definitely one of the most important goals I’ve ever scored, if not the most important. I’m here on loan to try to score goals and help Swansea get promoted, so I was delighted with that one because it gave us victory in a difficult game.

“At United you are always told to be prepared when you’re on the bench,” he added. “They tell you that you could be on at any minute and that you have to be ready to take your chance.

“Any time I come on as a substitute I always believe I can score. As a striker you are often put on to try to change the game, and quite often you only get once chance to do that.

“That’s how it happened this time and thankfully I scored because the crowd were expecting us to win. It was an undescribable feeling when it went in.

“I’ve settled in really well at Swansea. The players have been really good to me and I’m enjoying it,” he said. “And now the England Under-19s game should be another good experience for me.”
