Swansea City manager Graham Potter believes Alan Curtis’ “experience and quality” will prove a valuable asset in the club’s plans this season.

The club legend was today appointed part of Potter’s backroom staff, with Curtis named assistant coach.

Potter also brought in assistant manager Billy Reid and recruitment analyst Kyle Macaulay with him from former club Ostersund this month.

And the Swans boss feels Curtis’ appointment is an important one as his backroom team takes shape.

“I have known Alan through mutual friends for a number of years, so I know how respected and important he is at this football club,” said Potter.

“Nobody knows the football club better than him.

“He brings an experience and quality that will prove really valuable to us.

“He will support the environment here. He is someone for all of us to draw on his experience, mentorship and support.

“Alan is an important person to have around and I’m excited to be working with him.”
