Jenkins: Europa League Massive Opportunity For Us

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says Europa League football is a massive opportunity for the club, as they compete for a place in the competition next season having reached the Capital One Cup Final.

Whilst Jenkins says that a lot of clubs moan about the Europa League, the chairman says the club will '100% try to make a success out of it'.

If Swansea City beat Bradford City at Wembley on Sunday, they would compete in a European competition for the first time in 22 years.

"If we are lucky enough to get that chance, we will try 100 per cent to make a success of it and to enjoy it.

"We will ignore the fact that many other clubs just moan about the Europa League because of the travelling involved and the number of games you have to play.

"I would view getting into the Europa League as a massive opportunity for us.

"If you look back a few years, going into Europe would be far better than where we could have been travelling to if we had ended up driving around the country playing Conference games."


Jenkins also told the Evening Post that winning a place in the Europa League would help move the club even further forward:

"If we can get past Bradford — and we know that we will have to be 100 per cent on our game to do that — it`s something our football club would relish,"

"If we got into the Europa League, we would take the challenge on and try to compete just as we have done in the Premier League.

"This weekend is a chance for us to keep our club moving forward.

"If we are lucky enough to win the final, it will be a massive boost for us."
