Swansea City Ferrie Bodde interview
31st July 2015
During the Under-21s squad's recent pre-season tour to Holland, we caught up with former fan-favourite Ferrie Bodde in Den Haag to talk all things Swansea City.
The midfielder, who made 59 appearances for the club after arriving from ADO Den Haag in 2007, has now taken up a coaching position at his former club after retiring through injury.
And part one of our Swans TV interview sees Ferrie reflect on a record-breaking year for Swansea City and the success of his former team-mate Garry Monk.
"I'm delighted that Garry is the manager and he's doing really well," said Ferrie. "I think he's the best person for the job and he has seen a lot. He was a really good captain.
"Every year it gets better and I think Swansea could do well again this season. You need to make that step and maybe become a stable top-six club. I think it's possible, especially with the players Swansea have and the style of football they play.
"I had the most wonderful time at Swansea. Sometimes at a club, when it becomes successful, people can get selfish - but this didn't happen at Swansea. We just added players to our big family and I'm so pleased that they are doing well."
You can watch the second part of our interview with Ferrie on Swans TV next week.
