No Rift Between Board & Manager Says Jenkins

No Rift Between Board & Manager Says Jenkins

Huw Jenkins has said there has been no rift between the board and the manager, following Sousa's comments this week about a lack of money available to strengthen the squad.

Vital Swansea had heard over the weekend that Sousa was looking to sign a striker from overseas on loan last month but he the board denied him the funds to bring in more players on loan to boost our chances of a play-off spot.

Following this, Paulo Sousa then told the press the club missed the opportunity to strengthen the squad in preparation for the final season run-in.

Some fans may have assumed that there had been a falling out between the Swansea City board of directors and the manager, but instead chairman Huw Jenkins says he's glad that Sousa is showing his emotion and his desire for success.

'We all want results and sometimes with Paulo things probably don't come out as he means them to come out,'

'He is a passionate man who gets very emotional doing his job.

'Sometimes, straight after games, things can get said and then they are taken the wrong way.

'But I can assure you and everybody else that everyone at our club is working together. We are all 100 per cent committed to making sure we finish the season as strongly as we can.'


Jenkins also explained the difficulty in signing players at this stage of the season. The Swans had 7 matches in March and we suffered with a lack of midfielders, but we were unable to bring in replacements for the likes of Andrea Orlandi and Joe Allen.

'We have done a lot this season, not just in terms of fees but with players' wages,'

'We have done a lot over the last 12 months, but the fact is that trying to get players at certain times in the season is not easy.

'It's easy to get players when you don't really need them, but in February and March every club has something to play for and they don't want players to go.

'You are not going to be able to just do what you want at that time of year.'
