Steve Cooper addresses Swansea City uncertainty following recent links with Crystal Palace and Fulham

Steve Cooper has played down speculation that he could be set to leave Swansea City.

Reports this summer have suggested that the promising manager was a contender to join both Crystal Palace and Fulham following an impressive time at the Liberty Stadium.

Both of those vacancies have now been filled but with just one year remaining on his contract in South Wales, questions are still be asked about his long-term future at the club, however Cooper has rebuffed any rumours by saying that he’s fully committed to the Swansea cause.

As quoted by Wales Online, Cooper said: “I think if there is any real news that’s when we would speak.

“There’s no official updates on anything. You know I don’t like talking about myself so let’s focus on the boys.

“I’m here, I’m working hard. I think you could see tonight [against Plymouth] through the good and some of the not so good moments, you could see that the players are trying.

“Day by day that’s how it is. I’ve always been that way. I’ve not paid attention to anything else.

“If there’s anything official to talk about me then we’ll talk about it then, but there’s not. We’ll leave it at that.”

He added: “I couldn’t have given any more in the last two years because that’s what the job demands and that’s how I personally live my life anyway.

“There’s nobody that could have worked any harder than me over the last two years because I’ve been so proud to be a part of this brilliant football club and that’s how I feel exactly at this moment in time.

“I’ve got a fantastic connection with the players, I’m very fond of them, the staff and it’s that sort of place I’ve felt from day one. I think every player will say that as well.”

The verdict

Swansea City fans will surely be hoping that Steve Cooper’s future can be tied up soon.

The manager has enjoyed a wonderful two years with the Swans in which they have showed steady signs of improvement after moving to the cusp of promotion.

The hope this season will now be that they can finish the job.

Cooper looks destined for a chance in the Premier League and if he can get Swansea promoted this season then it will be an outcome that will surely tempt him to stick around for the foreseeable.
