Ashley Williams reveals Swans squad had to Google new boss Francesco Guidolin

first_img “I know everything about him (Guidolin) now as I Googled him on Sunday night,” Williams said. “I’m sure everybody did the same thing as I did and the boys did, we know his background but it doesn’t really matter to us who comes in. “We get told ‘he’s your manager’, you listen to what he has to say, give your all and do as best as you possibly can. “We have to help him settle in as quick as possible. The chairman (Huw Jenkins) has made that move which is fine with us. “We just get on with it and we’re just happy we got the win for Curt and the other guys.” Williams said the players were aware of Guidolin’s presence at the Liberty Stadium, the 60-year-old having flown in from Italy on Monday afternoon. It was far from a vintage performance from the Swans but there was no shortage of commitment and endeavour to please Guidolin, as Curtis closed his seven-game reign with a second victory. “As players we knew he was watching and when you’ve got a new manager you want to impress him,” Williams said. “But more than that it was about doing it for each other and the club. “We understand the position we are in and it’s not the time to be going through the motions or messing around. “It’s just about getting out of this position more than impressing the manager, we just need to pick up points. “We’re professionals and we just go out and do our job for the club that pays us, regardless of who is the manager.” Watford’s defeat was their fourth league loss in a row and the Hornets have now gone five games without a win. It is a run which has seen them fall to 12th and the 19-goal partnership of Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney have drawn a blank in the last three league games. But Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has sought to improve the supply line to them by completing the signing of Malaga winger Nordin Amrabat on a three-and-a-half-year contract. “He is good and it is good for us to have players to cover different positions,” said Flores, who refused to discuss reports linking them to young Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair. “To have competition is very important and it is good news that very good players want to come to Watford. “It means that we are growing and we can accept that players want to come here and play for us. “Amrabat is ready to play, he knows Watford and the possibility that we have in the Premier League. “He needs to know my rules and how we are working, but great players are very quick to learn the systems.” Ashley Williams says the Swansea squad are up to speed with shock new managerial appointment Francesco Guidolin after Googling the Italian on the internet. Guidolin had a watching brief on Monday night as Swansea moved out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone by beating Watford 1-0, Williams’ first goal for nearly two years securing the Welsh club only their third win in 18 attempts. The former Udinese boss, who takes over team matters from interim manager Alan Curtis, will take the reins for Sunday’s visit to Everton – but Williams insists the players are not bothered who is in charge.

Women’s soccer: Wisconsin returns home to host Purdue

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team is coming off Sunday’s disappointing 1-0 loss against the Scarlet Knights. This was their second game this season without putting the ball in the net.The team is now in the midst of a 0-2-1 three-game stretch against Michigan, Maryland and Rutgers after having won the previous seven games, including two Big Ten matchups. The Badgers now sit at 8-3-1 overall and have now dropped to No. 26 in the NCAA rankings after having spent much of the first part of the season ranked in the top 25. They look to recover from their broken winning streak and get their season back on track Friday night against the Purdue Boilermakers in Madison. This is a much needed return to campus after being unable to win their previous two games on the road. The Purdue Boilermakers womens team is currently an impressive 9-2-1 including 4-0-1 in the Big Ten with wins over Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, and Illinois. The NCAA has them ranked at 28, just two spots behind the Badgers. They are led in goals by Maddy Williams, who leads the Big Ten currently with nine goals as well to go along with an impressive eight assists. Their second top offensive player so far has been Andrea Petrina who has contributed heavily to the Boilermakers offense with five goals and four assists thus far. This offense should prove to be a challenge for the Badgers defense, who have performed well this season. The Badgers have shut out six teams in their 12 games played, which is a testament to how well Caitlyn Clem and the defense have been playing. The Badgers are led in scoring by sophomore Dani Rhodes with eight goals and Lauren Rice with three goals.The game will be played at 7 p.m. on Friday evening at McClimon Soccer Complex and will be available to watch on Big Ten Network Plus. Tune in to watch the Badgers attempt to get their season back on track in the second half of the season.last_img read more
