'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sousa Criticises Warnock

Former Queens Park Rangers boss Paulo Sousa has criticised current boss Neil Warnock for his approach to the game.

The current Swansea manager has masterminded his side's rise into the playoff places, but ahead of this weekend's clash he seems to be preoccupied with Rangers' tactics.

The Swans boss told the BBC of his dislike for Warnock's tactics in the wake of this weekend's clash

'He is always pushing the referees for his side,' Sousa said.

'It's something everybody knows and if they [referees] concede to do that it's because they agree with that.

He added: 'He's the type of manager who will always encourage the players to tackle the opponents to intimidate the players and I don't like it,

'It's not something I encourage my players to do because it's not the type of football I like.

'But from what I have seen he looks to be doing all right because he's getting some results.'


So why is Sousa focusing on Queens Park Rangers - a quick look of Swansea's recent form may well suggest why he may be deflecting attention away from his side.

The Swans have won only once in their last four games - scoring just once in that period. The home defeat by West Bromwich Albion makes this weekend's clash at Loftus Road all the more important.

at the end of the day ... it's football not ballet: and if we took the way foreigners' approach the game we'd all be cheating divers! There may be some bitterness on sousa's part.

When all's said and done, he's moved on and so have we. I think we've ended up with the kind of manager that will suit the club. Not in terms of style but ambition. Sousa was well versed in keeping things tight and nicking goals, which is good but it's not entertainment. Warnock strikes a good balance between attack and defence and has got players to show passion where it was previously lacking.

I didn't mind Paulo Sousa at all, he was building something, it wasn't pretty mind you. I think in a round-about way we have the right manager. His comments are a bit bizarre if you ask me.
