It has been a delightful season so far for Burnley's Jack Cork. Since making his £10m move to Turf Moor from Swansea last summer, Cork has enjoyed a run of form which has helped see his new club up to seventh in the Premier League table. Burnley are level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool.
Cork has capped off an excellent week for himself after he bagged his first Burnley goal against his former club Swansea to help the Clarets to a 2-0 victory over the Welsh side. Cork also earned his first England cap earlier in the week against Germany.
In an recent interview, via the Burnley Express, Cork has spoken about how much he is enjoying life at Turf Moor: "I feel good, I feel fresh, I feel confident. Maybe it’s the move and the new environment, that can always help things."
"It’s been perfect for me. My family are proud and I’m just enjoying my football," Cork added. "I think, yeah, I feel at home here. My family is settled here now."
Cork faced the difficult task of scoring against his former club, with his goal adding to the Swans' woes who have now lost their last four league games and sit in 19th in the Premier League table.
With pressure mounting on Swansea manager Paul Clement, Cork took the time to defend his former boss: "It all does come down to the manager, but you know he’s got quality as a manager," said Cork, via the Telegraph.
"He’s been there before and what he did last season was an unbelievable achievement. It was a real mess [at Swansea] when he came in January and he has shown he can get them out of trouble."
Cork also revealed that it might not have been Clement's decision to sell him to Burnley last summer: "It was one of those things when I ended up leaving but he said he still looks out for me and told me ‘well done for England’. I think it maybe wasn’t his decision."
The high price th Burnley offered for Cork ultimately forced the move through for Swansea. But the England midfielder has not looked back and will be looking forward to Burnley's next big test against Arsenal.
