Martinez Not Blaming De Vries For Palace Defeat

Martinez Not Blaming De Vries For Palace Defeat

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez says he is not blaming goalkeeper Dorus De Vries for Saturday's 2-0 defeat away at Crystal Palace.

Instead, the Spaniard said his side lose as a team and gave backing to his current no1 Dorus De Vries.

Martinez told Wales Online:

"I don`t blame Dorus - we win and lose as a team,"

"You can analyse every goal and find the responsibility from players.

"It`s great you`ve got someone with the maturity and accept mistakes which tells you about the player - but I don`t see it that way.

"As a team we didn`t perform as we could and that`s why we didn`t get anything out of the game.

"Dorus has shown once more how responsible he is and his character as a leader that he will hold his hand up.

"He will react in the best possible way against Derby and will keep on saving a lot of points for this football club as he has been doing for a long, long time now."


De Vries blamed himself for the goals conceded at Selhurst Park on the weekend. The Dutchman watched a free-kick fly in at his far post from out wide before failing to deal with a low strike for Palace's second of the game.

Was Dorus De Vries to blame for Saturday's defeat? Should he have done better with the goals?
