Swansea City will not be in the Championship just to make up the numbers according to Roberto Martinez.
Preparations for next season will start in earnest for the club's first season back in the second tier of British football for 24 years. Player contracts will be the first priority and with up too 11 first team players looking to secure a contract at the club over the summer.
Roberto Martinez was thought to have had one to one talks with out of contract players this afternoon to discuss their futures as the Liberty Stadium outfit look to avoid the relegation from the highly competitive championship next season. Working towards his premiership aim the Spaniard may have to push sentiment aside as he looks to secure vital reinforcements for next season.
Winger Paul Anderson may have played his last game for Swansea City after his loan deal from Liverpool expires. Manchester United striker Fabien Brandy also returns to his parent club and the future of Stockport County defender Ashley Williams is less than certain. Martinez however in the last few weeks has expressed a desire to sign on Anderson and Brandy for next season.
Martinez will be hoping the work ethic he has instilled in the squad will give the squad a firm base to build success upon.This success has bred a new found confidence and swagger not seen since the heady days under John Toshack.
| ''"Everything we have achieved is by hard work, not by accident, and we aim to make our mark in the Championship. It's an historic day for the club and what is especially pleasing is that we've won the title by playing football on the ground."|
The Championship is a fantastic league and we are ready to step up. It will be a different challenge next season and it's important we have a big enough squad to cope with it." "
It will be an historic occasion whoever it is against. You always work hard for a moment like this and lifting the trophy is something special. It was a great way to finish the season but be we need to keep progressing. We want to try and win on a consistent basis, while trying to play attractive football. We want to achieve something in the Championship not just be visitors - that is our next target."
