Franck Tabanou has hit out at Swansea after leaving the club to return to St Etienne on loan.
Tabanou will rejoin the La Ligue outfit until the end of the season, just months after he signed for Swansea on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The defender made only three appearances — all in cup competitions — for the Swans and told L’Equipe: “I had gone to Swansea to get to the next level, to get my foot in the Premier League and to then go higher.
"They did not give me my chance. I do not understand. And I think, if I had stayed, my situation wouldn’t have changed.
"The club is in a terrible situation and despite that, they never let me play. They have their players, they will fight until the last minute. This is not the way I play.
"I might have been able to make more effort but I also expect an effort from them.”
