Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth believes the club is in for a much better campaign next season.
Ainsworth who took charge of the Chairboys on a permanent basis in 2012, says there is optimism around the club and knows they will enjoy next season with the changes made on and off the pitch and now can admit that he has his own squad.
Ainsworth said ”This season coming is the first time it’s actually been my squad, with no players that I’ve inherited, and that’s really important to me.”
”I think maybe the squad was a little too big last year and we tried to accommodate too many people. But you learn as you go and thankfully the club have given me time to learn these lessons and I want to pay that back.” he added.
The former QPR midfielder says as a team, he believed they were short on options but now is positive about the signings he has made.
”As a team we were quite short last year and now I think you have to win the battle in League Two. So we’ve signed some big players who have got quality, as well and you’ll see that with Peter Murphy scoring goals from midfield and players like Paul Hayes and Aaron Pierre that everyone already knows about.”
The Wycombe boss has not completed his summer transfers yet, left back is a position he wants to fill.
”There’s no recognised left-back in the squad so there’s an opportunity there. Aaron Pierre and Sam Wood so great jobs playing there but I’d like to release Sam into the midfield and he can be an outstanding talent for us on the wing if we get the right full-back behind him.”
