'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Martinez Aims For Top 7 Next Season

Roberto Martinez aims for a top 7 finish next season in the Championship.

The Swansea City manager said finishing outside the play-offs again would be acceptable if they ended the season one place higher than last year.

The aim last season, our first time in the 2nd tier of English football for 24 years, was simply to avoid relegation. Martinez however built a side that exceeded all expectations as they battled for a play-off spot up until the penultimate match.

Martinez told the Evening Post:

'We have taken a massive step forward this season,'

'Now we are starting to prepare for the next challenge and we need to finish in the top seven in the next campaign.

'The aim of this club is always to improve in every department.

'I am not just talking about the squad. I am talking about other areas like our facilities.


The Swans boss also added that the club also need to continue improving every department:

'We need to improve every department of the football club.'

'It's been a great season,'

'If you look at it in terms of reaching our aims, we wanted to compete at the higher level and we did that.

'We made sure we stayed in the division and then we competed for a play-off place right until the end.

'That's huge credit to the football club, but now we must look to improve again.'


I'm sure a lot of fans feel the play-offs should be our aim next season after just missing out this year. It would be a shame to finish 7th, just below the play-offs when we've proved this season that we're capable of achieving a top 6 place.
