Williams: I'd Much Rather Play For Wales Than Rest

Ashley Williams says he'd prefer to play for Wales than have 2 week's rest.

Swansea manager Roberto Martinez has called for Wales boss John Toshack to go easy on the defender as he thinks the first team regular needs a 2-week rest.

However, our £400,000 record signing said he'd rather play 2 games for Wales than relax on a beach, like his team-mates will be doing.

Williams told the Western Mail:

'I'd much prefer to be playing these games than sitting on a beach somewhere,'

'The Swans players who are going away for a break have been taking the mickey out of me constantly for the last two weeks,'

'I don't think they envy me, but deep down I think they'd rather be playing in international games.'

'I'm not fatigued, not at all,'

'It's impossible not to be full of energy and up for every game when you're playing at the Liberty, or going to great stadiums like Hillsborough. I want to play as much against Finland and Germany as possible.'


The former Stockport County centre-back is showing great attitude and willingness to play in every game, as he has done for the Swans this season, but on the other hand he could still do with a well-earned break and to re-charge the batteries for the final run-in.
