The midfielder moved to the Liberty Stadium after three unfulfilled years at Anfield.
Jonjo Shelvey says he doesn’t regret his decision to leave Liverpool in the summer and admits that it was the offer of regular football that tempted him to Swansea.
The 21-year-old joined the south Wales for £5 million in July and felt that it was the right time to leave Anfield after being limited to just 17 league starts in three years on Merseyside.
“I don’t regret leaving because I’d probably be on the bench [at Liverpool],” he explained to BBC Sport. “It was a massive decision, but I feel that I’ve made the right choice in coming away.”
Shelvey comes up against his former employers at the Liberty Stadium on Monday night but insists he won’t go on a personal crusade to show Brendan Rodgers what he’s missing.
“I wasn’t pushed out. Brendan said that I could stay at Liverpool and fight for my place and people say I should have done that,” he added.
“But it’s not in my character to sit around and wait for an opportunity, I want to play now and make a name for myself and get that consistency that young players need.
“I don’t think I’ve got a point to prove to Brendan Rogers, I’m not going to go out there and try these Hollywood passes.
“I’m just going to go out there and just play my normal game and get myself settled into the game and not let the occasion get to me.”
