Young fan Ella's special interview with Swansea City boss Steve Cooper

10th July 2020

He’s well accustomed to press conferences, but Steve Cooper has been put under the spotlight in a special interview with a young fan.

The Swansea City boss held a special Zoom interview to help nine-year-old fan Ella Drew with a sports report for a school newspaper she hopes to set up.

The budding reporter from Penclawdd spoke to Cooper about the difficulties the squad had during the lockdown period, along with getting his thoughts on the return of football and the challenges that lay ahead.

Ella, who plays football for Gower Galaxy Girls and is an avid Swans fan, was also invited by Cooper to watch the team train when it is safe to do so.

And Cooper made an extra gesture as he invited Ella and her parents to a future Swans game – when fans are allowed to watch matches again - as his special guests.
