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

Swansea Is Perfect Preparation For Us - McClaren

FC Twente boss Steve McClaren said Saturday's game against Swansea City is the perfect preparation for his team ahead of their upcoming Champions League match.

McLaren said:

'We had many offers to come over to the UK but we agreed early on that Swansea was perfect preparation for us, as in less than 10 days' time we play our first Champions League tie,'

'We needed opposition that would test us defensively. And I can assure all home fans that I will bring my strongest possible squad and we will come to win.

'I know that we are playing a team which built up a reputation as being possibly the best footballing side in the Championship last season.

'When you add this to the fact that they have a very cultured, new manager and a stadium and surface second to none in the division, it's the perfect place for us to come to.'


We'll be posting up a full Preview of the game later today.
