Williams: This season's been a grind

Cape Town - Swansea City captain Ashley Williams believes the club's poor form this season is down to the club chopping and changing managers so frequently.

The Swans have been below par this season, sitting just eight points clear of the relegation zone and have had three managerial changes in Garry Monk, Alan Curtis and now Francesco Guidolin, something that the defender believes was detrimental to the team's overall performance this campaign.

The Wales international has described Swansea's season as the kind he would like to forget, before adding they need to finish this season well in order to build a solid platform to grow from next season.

"This season's been a grind and [the 1-0 win over Villa] kind of summed it up a little bit. We didn't play very well but we managed to grind out a result," Williams told the Guardian.

"It's not been enjoyable, to be honest. There's been a lot of changes with the manager, it's not ideal.

"It's kind of one you want to get it out the way, get safe, see where you can finish and try and put everything right before next season and have another good season.

"I think this season is an important one, we've got it wrong for whatever reason and it's unacceptable for a club like Swansea to have a season like this with the players that we've got.

"It's such a good club, we need to do better next season, so there's a lot of talking to be done in the summer."
