‘Renato Sanches thought he was going to Man United or Chelsea’

Leicester 1 – Swansea 1

Swansea are out of the bottom three on goal difference.

That’s a remarkable achievement for manager Carlos Carvahal, who took over the side at the foot of the table.

Against the odds, Swansea are unbeaten in their las seven games in all competitions. During that time they’ve beaten Wolves, Liverpool and Arsenal. While on Saturday they drew 1-1 away at Leicester.

Jamie Vardy fired the Foxes into the lead, but Federico Fernandez levelled for Swansea early in the second half.

‘Renato Sanches thought he was going to Man United or Chelsea’

Over the weekend, former Swansea manager Paul Clement has spoken to the Times.

In his interview, Clement has spoken about Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches.

When Sanches joined Swansea at the start of the year on a season-long loan deal, everyone was stunned.

The Portuguese European Championship winner was hailed as an incredible signing for the Swans.

But Sanches has struggled to impress at the Liberty Stadium this season.

The midfielder, who is currently sidelined with a hamstring problem, has no goals or assists for Swansea in the Premier League.

Clement has now revealed how Sanches thought he’d be going to a bigger club in the summer, like Man United or Chelsea:

He wasn’t so keen (on joining Swansea) initially. He thought he was going to go to Man United, Chelsea or Paris Saint-Germain.

Bayern were saying, ‘You’re not going there, it would be the same situation, you’re not going to play.’

When he came, he was far more damaged than I thought. It was really sad. He was a boy who had almost got the weight of the world on his shoulders.
