'It's About Evolution' Says Boss Sousa

'It's About Evolution' Says Boss Sousa

Paulo Sousa is looking to continue the good things that made us a success in the Championship last season, and promises evolution rather than revolution.

Roberto Martinez blended a side together that played the best football in the division last year, many pundits and opposing players and managers admitted so - even Sousa when his QPR side beat us in March.

The 38 year-old is looking to continue on from what Martinez has left behind, rather than to start something completely new.

Coupled with a similar attractive style of football to what Martinez brought to the side, the Portuguese boss will of course add his own ideas into the team and tweak us into becoming an even better outfit.

Some fans hope we become a more effective team. Sometimes last season, we passed the ball to death but lacked the ability to break down defensive teams.

Sousa told Wales Online:

"It is about evolution,"

"Things must be open and on-going. Football is not always as simple as two plus two equals four - it is evolutionary, it is about dynamism and progress.

"And that is what I am looking for as a manager."

"I am not surprised from what I have seen here. I said before I joined, Swansea were one of the best footballing sides in the division and everything I have expected, I have.

"I have seen players progress already in different ways, I have seen us adjust our game and progress after losing players.

"That is evolution; losing important players, but still progressing in other ways.

"We have made a start, we have had pre-season where it is about building important principles and identity.

"Now, with focus, that can help us to start better than we did last season.

"Then the different demands from every game will help this evolution, for players as individuals and for players as a team.

"And I will work hard every day to give the best I can to my players to help this evolution."


Sousa seems to impress us, the fans, more and more everytime he's interviewed with his ambitions, vision and self-confidence.

We may well have to be patient, but things are looking bright under Paulo Sousa.

We'll have a detailed Match preview for tomorrow's game at Leicester City to follow shortly.

"Sousa seems to impress us, the fans, more and more everytime he's interviewed with his ambitions, vision and self-confidence." Too true, he's impressing me every time he talks.
