Jenkins: Don't Write Swansea City Off

Jenkins: Don't Write Swansea City Off

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says don't write off the team in the Premiership next season despite the big jump up in competition following promotion from the Championship.

The Swans will automatically be one of the big favourites to go straight back down next year, but Jenkins told BBC Sport that it would be foolish to write the team off right now:

'Everybody would be foolish to write us off just for those type of games,'

'We've proved in the Championship, [against] so called bigger clubs heavily spending way over our budget, we competed and competed very well [and] played the best football in the Championship.

'That will carry on and there's no doubt, apart from the top four or five in the Premier League, every team in that league is beatable.

'We'll continue the way we play football and hopefully that will be a good start for us and give us the right encouragement to go forward.'


Jenkins has insisted that the Swans are looking to compete in the Premier League next year, and not just be a club to make up the numbers. Money will be invested back into strengthening the team as we look to continue building and develop into a top flight side.

'It's a fantastic opportunity and a challenge for us,'

'We're realistic. We know every game in the Premier League is going to be probably like our play-off final. It's going to be a 90 minute battle from end to end.

'We're just pleased to be here and hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves and compete in every game.

'Yes we need to start well, yes we need to build confidence and the Brendan and the team are happy they can compete.

'They can look forward to every game but ultimately there's a long way to go and right throughout the season you have to remain competitive.'
