Shelvey predicts Ngog success

Jonjo Shelvey is confident that his former Liverpool team mate David Ngog will be a success at Swansea.

Ngog has moved to the Liberty Stadium after signing for the rest of the season with less than six months remaining on his contract at Bolton.

The French forward moved to the Reebok from Anfield in 2011, but the Welsh club made their move following a series of injuries to hit Michael Laudrup's squad.

Shelvey lined up alongside Ngog early on in his career for the Reds and feels Swansea will see the best of his talents.

"I worked with him for 18 months at Liverpool so I know what he can do," said Shelvey.

"David had a good record at Liverpool. But, with no disrespect to him, there were a lot of far bigger names in front of him at Anfield like Fernando Torres.

"He couldn't get too much of a look-in. But if he gets a chance here, he'll take those chances. At this club, the fans make you feel loved."
