Swansea City manager Bob Bradley: Everybody has a big role to play
6th October 2016
Bob Bradley believes "everybody has to be in it together" to help Swansea City make progress this season.
Bradley, who was appointed new Swans manager on Monday afternoon, took his first full training session today after meeting his new staff and players on Wednesday.
He takes over a Swans side that sits above the bottom three only via goal difference, with his first game in charge coming at Arsenal next week.
And the 58-year-old believes the efforts of the players, staff and fans will be crucial as he looks to steer the Swans in the right direction.
"Everybody has to be in it together. That is the key to any kind of success for the club," said Bradley.
"For the players, the next period is about restoring confidence. Let's make sure when we lose the ball our reactions are fast; when we have an opportunity to close down we do it in the right way; that we are hard to play against and when we have the ball everybody is available and wants it and passes it quickly.
"For me, it's about reinforcing what has to happen in any good team. That's what Swansea has been about."
Bradley, who will address the media in his first press conference on Friday, also spelt out what style supporters can expect to see from his side.
He said: "I love good, passing football. I want us to move the ball quickly and find the right time and way to get forward and create chances.
"It is also important that when you lose the ball everyone is ready to react and try to win it back. It's a complete team effort.
"Football starts with good passing."
