Robinson: Pay Me What I'm Worth

Robinson: Pay Me What I'm Worth

Andy Robinson has today explained the reasons behind the delay in him signing a new contract with Swansea City.

The midfielder has been linked with moves to Southend, Cardiff and Stoke but he says he doesn't want to leave the club he loves.

He said: 'At this stage in my career - I'm not 21 any more, I'm 26 - I've got to make sure I'm secure financially for the next two or three years,' said Robinson, who played a huge role in last season's surge into the League One play-offs.

'I obviously want to get the best deal for myself - I'm in that type of game.

'You've got to look after yourself because football is a short-lived career and you've got to make as many pennies as you can in the time you've got in it.

'I'm not playing one team off against another. I do what I do on the pitch and I hope to be rewarded for that and respected in terms of what my wage should be at the club.

'My agent knows the value of players at this club, players in League One and players in the Championship, which is a level I believe I can play at.

'I've got to go on his word and his judgement as to what I should be earning.'

'If another club offered me more money than Swansea, would I go? That's the million dollar question.

'But, in an ideal world, Swansea is where I want to be. I've told the gaffer and the chairman that this is my club. I love the club and the fans.'


I think it's vital that we keep hold of Andy Robinson for another few years. He was excellent last season and scored 18 goals from midfield.

He deserves a pay rise after his consistent performances in the 3 years he's been here and hopefully a contract can be signed soon.
