Jazz – Gaffer’s Shouts Just Help Me

The Swansea City youngster has been pressed into action at left back in recent weeks thanks to the injury to Fede Bessone but he has impressed with his performances although he admits he has to improve all the time.

And much of that he puts down to the methods of manager Paulo Sousa who gave him his chance in the first team even if it does give him earache at times

It doesn’t always help when the gaffer is shouting in your ear for 45 minutes

“But it’s all constructive criticism and I will only learn from it.

“Maybe if he wasn’t shouting at me I wouldn’t adapt as quickly. It’s working for me and it’s not a bad thing really.

“After a game, whether we have won or lost, he never criticises the players. He just tells us to keep our heads up and, when I need it, he just gives me advice.

“I know I make mistakes now and then, but it’s all part of my learning curve. The gaffer knows I’m playing out of position so he tries to help me as much as possible.

“I’m still learning with the positioning. It’s taken a while to get used to it, but I wasn’t expecting to play as many games as I have this season anyway.”
