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

Snodin Sees No 'Real Weakness' In Swansea Squad

Leeds United assistant boss Glynn Snodin says he sees no 'real weakness' in the Swansea City squad and believes they'll be there challenging for promotion.

Snodin admitted that he didn't know much about Brendan Rodgers, but is fully aware of where he has worked and what he's done - including being approached by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to become their new Youth Team manager.

"I don`t know Brendan especially well,"

"But I know where he`s been and what he`s done.

"Anyone who`s taken on by Mourinho and gets the chance to work with a master like that is going to know their football. You ignore that at your peril.

"Swansea are not a club who were being marked out as definite promotion material before the season started, but I`ve watched several of their games and they`ll be involved.

"People might look at Swansea`s squad and see a few unfamiliar players, but I look at it and see no real weakness.

"It`s big, it`s strong and it`s suited to the Championship.

"Finding consistency is a massive challenge and the teams who do will get out of this division."


Snodin also added that the Championship is a very competitive League and while a number of teams have a chance of challenging for promotion, consistency will be the key:

"But a good start is all we`ve had. I`m not reading anything into the league table, genuinely.

"It won`t take shape for a while and it might still be wide open in eight months` time.

"Last season, just about every club in the Championship had something to play for going into the last few games.

"At the moment we`re not thinking about our league position.

"We`re concentrating on getting a good level of consistency against a different class of club to what we dealt with last year."
