Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has predicted that this season will be a tough challenge but has not forgotten the overall goal of securing top flight football.
From nearly going out of the football league 5 years ago to being a stones throw away from the premiership , the club have turned their fortunes around. Speaking before the first game of the season at Charlton , the local businessman is beaming with pride at the clubs new status in the second tier of British football
Jenkins has even urged fans to get behind the Squad and Roberto Martinez to realize the clubs ambition of premier league status but insists he will not let Martinez leave and in turn let the the team regress.
Jenkins Told The SWEP:
|'It's a proud moment for us going into the Championship and there will be a feeling of pride at The Valley next weekend.We're proud because of the way things have developed over the last six or so years. Look at where we are with our manager, the strength of our squad and the way the fans feel about the club. All that gives us a bit of pride and a bit of confidence that we are doing something right, but there's a long way to go yet.'|
'We are only about halfway towards where we need to be.We have to realise as a club that it is going to take us a few years to get to where we want to be.I look back at the mistakes made years ago when John Toshack took us forward. Back then we had a bright young manager and we allowed him to leave when he had a poor time.We know there will be difficult times ahead and, when they do come, it's down to us and the supporters to work together to keep things going forward.'
