We Could Have Been Sunderland

Lukasz Fabianski knows just how close the Swans came to relegation this season and also appreciates that the roles on Saturday could easily have been reversed if it was not for the appointment of Paul Clement as manager back in January.
The Swans went into the New Year a point adrift of Hull and two from Sunderland both of whom have been relegated in the past few weeks. It was four points from safety as well with Crystal Palace in 17th on New Year's Day and more than a win clear of the Swans.
26 points from 18 games later and safety was assured thanks to Palace's 4-0 win over Hull yesterday and the Swans keeper believes that they could have ended up in Sunderland's position on Saturday had it not been for the managerial change
“It could quite easily have been us in Sunderland’s position,” he said
“You would have to say it was pretty bad, not just in terms of results but the way we performed.
"We were not just losing games but losing them by three goals. It was horrible both home and away.
“Before the manager arrived, we looked in pretty bad shape.
“A lot of people had written us off so for him to do what he’s done in little more than four months, is pretty impressive.
“No one would have predicted after beating Sunderland, we would find ourselves four points clear of Hull.
“It just shows you the corner we have turned since the manager came in.”
