Paulo Sousa has shown his disappointment and frustration over a lack of funds which has prevented him from strengthening his squad for the final few months of the season.
Vital Swansea understands that the Swansea City manager was looking to bring in a striker from abroad, but the board declined his requests for funds to make the signing.
Sousa told the Evening Post that he wanted to strengthen recently to help our push for the play-offs, but transfer funds were not made available to him.
'We can do something else if we were more prepared at the beginning of March. But things did not happen as I expected.
'I have said it three or four times - with the injuries we had, we needed some cover straightaway.
'We were in a good moment of form and we could have got more good results if we'd been able to have some turnover of players.
'I think we had a big opportunity in that moment. We were in good form - we were having a fantastic season at that time.'
When asked why no new arrivals came, he answered: 'You know better than me. The chairman has already spoken with you - he did an interview with you and he said they make the decisions, so we don't need to go through that.'
The Swans had a busy period in March which Sousa recognised and he was hoping to strengthen beforehand to ensure a good end to the season, but we've struggled for form lately and are holding on to a play-off spot.
A big concern for the club now is whether or not we can match Paulo Sousa's ambitions in the near future.
The Swansea boss has spoken out recently of his desire to manage in the Premier League, and unless we provide him with more transfer money, or he is able to work wonders with a small budget, there's a big concern as to whether we ourselves can offer him that Premier League ambition of his, because the way he's been speaking to the press lately, he's hardly going to wait around for a Premier League management opportunity.
