Leon Britton, who has just taken on the role of Swansea’s interim manager since Paul Clement was sacked has said he won’t become the Swans’ permanent manager now, though he hasn’t ruled it out for the future.
“Leon Britton was speaking at the first press conference since Clement parted ways with the club and spoke about his predecessor’s departure.
It’s disappointing that Paul has left the football club, he’s been here just over a year and I think we need to thank him for his efforts.
Last season he came at a difficult period and managed to keep us up, obviously this season hasn’t really worked out as he’d wanted.
We all know football is a results-driven business and if you don’t get the results then the manager is the one that leaves so we thank him for all his efforts and wish him the best for the future.”
The new caretaker manager said he thought inconsistency in performance was the reason why things hadn’t gone so well for the club.
” As players we’ve all got to take responsibility, it’s not just the new players who come in in the summer, it’s the players who have been here for one season, two seasons, four seasons, that we haven’t been performing as well as we should.
I don’t think we can just say it’s down to the lads we signed in the summer, it’s a joint effort, when we’re doing well it’s everyone and when we’re not performing well it’s down to everyone.”
