Alfei Mawson believes new Swansea City manager can make positive impact
1st January 2017
Alfie Mawson hopes the appointment of a new manager will lift Swansea City after yesterday's bleak defeat by Bournemouth.
The Swans are bottom of the Premier League after the Cherries triumphed 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
It is now four straight defeats for the struggling Swans, who are waiting to discover who their next boss will be following the departure of Bob Bradley.
And Mawson has fingers crossed that the arrival of a new man at the top can help inspire a turnaround in fortunes.
"I feel we can turn things around but we need to pull together and push on in 2017," the centre-back said.
"We must start to get results as soon as possible because the more games that go by without us picking up points, the further we get from safety.
"Hopefully a new manager will have a positive impact and we can turn things around in the coming games."
Alan Curtis took the reins for the Bournemouth game, but could not find a way to lift a side who have endured a difficult December.
Once again, the Swans' hopes of getting a result were wiped away because of their inability to keep the opposition at bay.
"Things are not going right for us on the pitch and it is showing," Mawson added.
"We knew we had to go out there and put in the performances, but we did the opposite against Bournemouth.
"They came here with a game-plan and executed it well and deserved the three points.
"When a team like that come and play well, they are ruthless.
"I am gutted with the goals we conceded. Every goal kills our game and the number we are conceding on a regular basis is concerning."
