Tottenham Hotspur didn’t play to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s strengths, according to Alan Curtis.

The Iceland international has effortlessly slotted into Garry Monk’s side since his return to the Liberty Stadium in the summer.

He’s been terrific for us, not only for his ability on the ball, but he works extremely hard as well

And Swansea coach Curtis reckons Sigurdsson didn’t succeed at White Hart Lane as the midfielder wasn’t played in his best position.

“He’s come to familiar surroundings and is very central to the way we play,” Curtis told talkSPORT.

“We play him in that no.10 shirt and I’m not sure Spurs used him to the best of his strengths, but he’s been terrific for us, not only for his ability on the ball, but he works extremely hard as well.”

Sigurdsson has scored two goals and made seven assists in 11 Premier League appearances this season.

And Curtis heaped praise on the Swansea playmaker for his recent performance in a 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

“The free-kick was testament to the work he puts in after training,” Curtis added.

“As soon as we finish you’ve got to drag him off the training ground, he’s forever practising those type of free-kicks.”
