The Swansea City Supporters Alliance has welcomed and applauded the response from the Supporters Trust regards the interview made in yesterday’s press by club Chairman Huw Jenkins.
In the interview, it was intimated that the Trust was aware of the sale before it had been claimed that they were and that there were many factual inaccuracies in statements being made.
The Trust though have moved swiftly to counter the claims made and we are pleased to see their reaction being strong enough to call for the resignation of the Chairman.
We are not sure why it was deemed a good idea by the football club to allow this interview to take place and we completely support the Trust in their calls for the resignation in light of this interview being made.
It has been the viewpoint of the SCSA since our formation that the position of the Chairman has been untenable due to performance in role but the conducting of yesterday’s interview merely added weight to that argument.
We are also disappointed, but not surprised, to note the fact that the interview was conducted with little questioning back from the press despite some clear statements to the contrary being available in the public domain. These situations have not helped our cause since the first news of the takeover was made as far back as April 2016.
We hope that the majority shareholders will take note of the calls by all supporters groups and act on this accordingly.
