Sousa To Appoint Two Assistants & Scout

Huw Jenkins has told News of the World that Paulo Sousa will be bringing in two assistants, one from his native Portugal and one from Spain.

The Swansea City chairman also says that they have also hired a European scout.

Sousa has travelled back home to talk things through with his family. He has verbally agreed to join us and is expected to return tomorrow and sign a 3-year deal.

Jenkins said:

'Paulo's no clone of Roberto - but it was vital he had the same philosophies to maintain the good work.

'It was always our aim to continue with the club ethos after the last two seasons.

'He'll target rising players as well as develop us long-term.

'Paulo will inherit an exciting squad which has been educated to play the game the right way already.

'We had a good feeling as soon as we spoke to him.

'He wanted the job and simply blew us away. We could see the passion he had to succeed and his vision for the future.

'He speaks six different languages, has worked under and alongside some world renowned coaches.

'After his playing career he's certainly not coming here for the money - he's here to better himself and Swansea City.'

'he'll be given a free hand to do what he wants and will have our backing. He'll bring in two young assistants with him, one from Spain, and we've also hired a European scout on his saying.'
