Swansea City manager Paulo Sousa is hoping for wins on and off the pitch against his former club QPR.
Not only is he looking for a win on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium, but he is also hoping for a win when he takes the Loftus Road club to court.
Rangers sacked Sousa in April after devulging sensitive information - that a player had left the club on loan without his knowledge.
As a result, the 38 year-old has never liked to talk about his short 5-month spell at QPR since taking over at Swansea City.
But Sousa told the Evening Post:
'These things are in the courts. This is the way I can fight it.
'My case is still going on, but I don't know what stage it is at. This is what my lawyer is paid for.
'They made a statement on the website and sent me a letter saying why I was leaving.
'I don't agree with what they said. I don't know what it was about — they need to justify it, not me.'
Sousa's record at QPR is somewhat similar to what he's experiencing with the Swans at present. Plenty of draws but few wins or losses. In 26 games, he won 7, lost 7 and drew 12.
He added: 'I'm happy with the job I did at QPR because I got recognition from my former players during and after my time there,' he added.
'I worked for them first, to increase the quality of the players.
'And when I saw the players feeling happy because they felt they developed every day in my training sessions, one part of my job was done.
'Also I worked for the supporters. I got a lot of people telling me after I left that I had done good things at QPR.
'Five months is no time for a project.
'The first idea we had was a three-year plan, and we were going to make some important steps in the last January transfer window.
'We were going to buy some players for specific positions but it didn't happen, so we had to fight with the players we had.
'It wasn't a surprise when I left because people know what can happen at that club with the people who are at the front of it.'
