Swansea boss Clement leaps to defence of under-fire Llorente

Swansea boss Clement leaps to defence of under-fire Llorente

"If we can do that then we're going to be in the top half and I don't know if this club has had four top-half finishes for a long, long time. we're always trying to do things for the first time".

"I would like to say, having worked with him, what a fantastic player he (Terry) is and what a career he has had", Clement added. He has unbelievable talent and he is a fantastic leader - one of a dying breed of leaders.

It was a run which saw the former Bayern Munich number two named the Premier League's manager of the month for January, but one point from the last six matches has put Swansea in real relegation danger again.

"He has represented that club so well over so many years in a time when players are too quick to move on and go from club to club".

"It is to do with the situation, there are five games left with three at home", Clement told a news conference on Thursday (April 20).

"He wasn't 100 per cent at Watford". Granted, none of these sides has been proficient away from home, but then Stoke have not been good on the road either: they've failed to score in five on their travels, four of which they've lost.

"You can not look at a player in isolation, but I don't get the feel that Fernando does not care or is not showing passion".

"If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested?"

They may not have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup this year, or even get past the Sharks for that matter. San Jose's power play was ranked 25th in the National Hockey League in the regular season at 16.7 percent.

"That is not something I have thought about at this point, we have to focus on the players and games we have got".

Gibbs also said that it will be tough and praised the fans, who the club will need the fans more than ever on Saturday.

"I think everybody can see he is getting stronger".

"But it is unlikely we will both win every game".

"You see odd results every week and you know you can't rely on other teams picking up or dropping points, it has to be about what we do".

"I'm not sure if that's going to be a position we'll look at if and when we're safe, and hopefully we are safe by the end of the season".

Alfie Mawson was signed in the summer by the Swansea and has been a regular starter under Paul Clement, playing the full 90 minutes in the Swans' last 19 league games.
