Bielsa Press Conference: Pre-Swansea

[Hernandez for Clarke, otherwise unchanged for Swansea, Forshaw still out.]

Here's Marcelo....

Press conference about to get underway...


On Jack Clarke...

"He is under observation, we are doing some more exams and evalutaions to see what happens and we all feel relieved."


The late goal at Boro....

When you don't lose it always improves your mental spirit. But it's not only about the final result and not losing but also about analysing the game. And to evaluate the kind of responses we were able to give. In that sense the conclusions are positives ones.


On the passing of Gordon Banks

He is a glory of English football and he is also a glory of world football. He is among the best goalkeepers in history and it's a small group when you talk about the best ones. All these real facts define who was Gordon Banks.


On Forshaw...

Adam Forshaw won't play tomorrow.
The situation of Adam didn't evolve as we thought so he won't be in the group tomorrow.
We think it's not that serious but the fact that he missed two games we have to take this reality into account. And we have more days after the game against Swansea so we hope he will be available in about ten days



Will Brown be part of the squad?

Yes, he will be part of the group tomorrow.

On getting the players in superb shape pre season

It's not convenient to be overweight but it's not the only aspect that decides the physical performance, the quality of the training sessions is also important and the professionalism of the player is more important than the qiality of the training session because to get a good physical performance you need to rest and the thing that makes you have a better physical performance is the character of the personality. A mix of these three aspects the most important one is the personality and we can also add the natural skills. The second thing is the professionalism and the third one is the quality of the training sessions.

On Swansea...

For me Swansea is a big team. It's a team that hasn't used it's full potential so far, it's a team that has a counter culture, they have players very good with the ball and I like how Swansea plays.

On Berardi....

He will play the next under 23s game and if everything goes well this weekend he will also play the next 23s game on Monday.
Dallas will also follow the same process and if they are well after these two games these two players will be closer to the first team.
It's not the same case of Douglas and Forshaw who have a shorter period of inactivity and it will be easier for them to reach their sports fitness.
Dallas and Berardi will need more time.

Bielsa talking up Swansea. Says they've got more potential than they've shown so far and he likes the way they play. He's expecting them to counter-attack.

Hernandez in for Clarke

Marcelo also named his side when doing his team news and he will make one change with Hernandez in for Clarke.

Bielsa on the promotion race - asked how difficult it will be to finish in the top two

"We all agree with the fact that in the Championship we don't have any easy games. We know it's difficult to have good results. You don't win many games with a huge difference in the score. It's very difficult to draw conclusions."


That's it from Marcelo

Nice one , Sol, 5 stars. Swansea are in disarray and have a poor away record. They have lost key players recently. If we can't win this one, we are not promotion material. End of.
