Routledge: Let's push on again
4th June 2015
Wayne Routledge has urged his team-mates to push on again next season as Swansea City prepare to build on a record-breaking 12 months.
The Swans enjoyed a fantastic 2014-15 campaign under the guidance of boss Garry Monk, breaking a number of club records on their way to an eighth-place finish in the Barclays Premier League.
They achieved their highest points tally and highest number of victories since winning promotion - including league doubles over both Arsenal and Manchester United.
And Routledge, who made 32 appearances last season, hopes Monk's men can make further strides in 2015-16.
"We've been on a massive up curve since I've been here," said the winger. "How far we can go now is the million dollar question. It just keeps going the same way, but we just take things day by day and game by game.
"We have to take that into next season and hopefully evolve more."
Routledge has made over 150 appearances for Swansea since arriving from Newcastle back in 2011 - the most games he has played for a single club in a career spanning more than a decade.
And the 30-year-old revealed that he couldn't have been happier since making the switch to SA1.
"The way we play as a team really helps me and I think that's true of a lot of the players that are here now," he said.
"Going on my track record possibly I didn't expect to be at Swansea this long, but I couldn't be happier with the way things have turned out here.
"I enjoy living here - I'm bringing my family down next year. I love the way the club's run and the way the team play football.
"I love everything about it so I'm home. I'm here until someone tells me differently."
