Martinez: 'It Should Have Been 10'

Martinez: 'It Should Have Been 10'

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez said he could and should have had 10 of his players in the division's team of the year.

5 of his squad were picked for the League One's best 11 and they were - Angel Rangel, Garry Monk, Ferrie Bodde, Andy Robinson and Jason Scotland.

The Spaniard thought others who missed were unlucky and he told the Western Mail:

"It`s some achievement.

"But there`s another four or five who are really unfortunate to miss out.

"We could have almost had the whole divisional team!

"You never see more than five from one club in a team of the year at any time.

"But when you look at the likes of Tom Butler, Dorus de Vries, Paul Anderson, Darren Pratley and, especially, Leon Britton, you have to say it`s unlucky for any of them to miss out.

"They have easily done enough, but I guess you have to have players from others clubs in there as well!

"But that just says something about some of the huge consistency the players have given this season - but also the fact that what we`ve done is being recognised.

"It`s a huge achievement for the club and all the players.

"Garry Monk had to come back from 13 months out, which people quickly forget, and then you have all the foreign players who have had to adapt to a new environment."


His side ended their home games this season with an excellent 4-1 win against Leyton Orient yesterday.

Following Anderson's opener, Bauza scored a 19-minute hatrick to give us a 4-0 lead at half time.

Everyone who missed out has a case for being in the team of the year. Britton must be the one obvious absentee.
