Macari Comments On Wise Appointment

Macari Comments On Wise Appointment

Swindon Town Legend Lou Macari, the club's most beloved manager has spoken about the appointment of Dennis Wise as Swindon manager.

"The public demand success. If it doesn't come instantly then any manager at any club is struggling to keep their job. I was lucky because there was less expectation in my day."

"As a manager you need the opportunity to put your ideas across and need time to get a good response from the players, managers nowadays don't always get that time.

"As a high-profile appointment, Dennis Wise will be expected to work miracles straight away but it just doesn't work like that.

"There was not the pressure when I was in charge. With the demand there is nowadays Dennis is going to have to be fortunate to get the right blend of players, the right response and a lot of luck."

"I always keep my eye out for their results"

"It is a big shame to see where they are but I have to admit I think Iffy Onuora had a very tough job on his hands last season."

"These are hard times, but now is the time for everyone to get behind Dennis Wise and Gus Poyet and give them the support they need if they are to turn things round."

"I was lucky when I took over in that the first signing I made was Colin Calderwood. There was no way I could have known the impact he would have on the club and Dennis needs that bit of fortune as well."

"I started off playing believing it was the right thing to do but after a while began to take a different view."

"I had played for 17 years at Celtic and Manchester United and so had been playing with players of the highest quality. The fact I had great players round me gave me the opportunity to show what I could do."

"Then going to Swindon Town that quality support from teammates was taken away and it was me who had the responsibility of trying to carry the other players through."

"It was difficult playing with players who had only really played at the lowest level. I was getting frustrated with them when things didn't work out and was expecting too much from them."

"In the end I decided the best thing to do was to stop playing because I was just increasing the pressure on them playing."
