Robbo tips Swans for European place
14th June 2015
Andy Robinson has tipped Swansea City to challenge for a Europa League place next season.
The Swans enjoyed a record-breaking 2014-15 campaign under Garry Monk, finishing eighth in the Barclays Premier League with a club-record 56 points.
Plans for the 2015-16 season are well underway in SA1 with Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew becoming the club's first summer signing on a four-year deal.
And former Swans winger Andy Robinson - who returned to the Liberty last month in the SwansAid charity match - believes the club can go one step further next season.
"Swansea were brilliant last year," he said. "What Garry has done so far has been first class and they are an established Premier League club now.
"The expectations will keep rising but that can only be a good thing. I know Monks well having played with him; he's a level-headed guy and he will keep everyone's feet on the ground.
"And with one or two additions to the squad this summer I'm sure they can push for a place in the Europa League."
He added: "Anything is possible in football. When Roberto (Martinez) first came in he said the club could get to the Premier League and that was eventually the case.
"We had a great group of lads at the time with the likes of Monks, Tatey (Alan Tate), Leon (Britton) and Trunds (Lee Trundle) - and I'd like to think the club will never lose that togetherness.
"It's been a fantastic journey for Swansea and I'm very much still attached to the club."
