Toshack Predicts Long Tough Season For Swansea

Wales international boss John Toshack predicts a long tough season for Swansea City in the Championship next season.

The former Swansea manager says a lack of Championship experience could see us struggle next year.

He told BBC Sport:

"They'll do well to hold their own and stay out of trouble.

Swansea and (manager) Roberto Martinez have done ever so well, but it's such a tough division with a lot of money from teams looking for a Premiership return.

Look at the Swansea squad, there's not much Championship-level experience.

Roberto knows the type of football he wants and that's what management is all about - it's what I did when I was in charge of Swansea,"

"I've seen them train a few times and they are so enthusiastic and forward looking, but we'll have to see how everyone fits in.

People will have to be patient, it's going to be a long, tough season for Swansea.

The likes of Joe Allen and Shaun McDonald will come through, I know that Roberto's pleased with those two."

Most of the squad showed that they were better than League 1. So they now have the opportunity to show it in the championship.
