As speculation heats up after the sacking of Garry Monk, prospective Swansea City coach Marcelo Bielsa has expressed excitement at not having his methods fully understood in a whole new league.
The odds on the Argentinian taking over at the Liberty City stadium were slashed on Monday after it was revealed that chairman Huw Jenkins had flown out to meet him. Speaking to media today, he revealed his giddiness at having his meticulous methods misunderstood and interpreted in a different footballing landscape.
“It’s very exciting. I’ve coached in a lot of places but the Premier League is different. If I’m honest, I’ve always dreamed of having all of my methods questioned by staff and media in England,” said the former Athletic Bilbao coach, adding that he relished the challenge of having a completely different style of footballer revolt against his tactics and methodology roughly six months into his proposed reign.
“Football is a universal language that everyone understands. I have no doubt that if I take this job, my players will quickly learn to adapt to and then disregard my ideas fully.”
