Lee Trundle: Returning to Swansea City as a club ambassador

Trundle is taking up a role that includes work with the current squad on community and charity commitments, host matchday hospitality and become part of the Academy coaching set-up.

The 36-year-old, a cult figure among Swansea fans, returns to the club after three years away during which time he played for Neath, Preston North End, Chester and Marine, and he is excited by the prospect.

"Ever since I left the club for Bristol City way back in 2007 I always said that I wanted to come back at some stage in any capacity, so I am excited about the new role," Trundle said.

"There is an even bigger buzz at the club and throughout the city now with the club in the Barclays Premier League.

"Football is everything I know and love and to stay involved in the game is fantastic. To do that at Swansea is even better.

"I've always had an amazing relationship with the fans, on and off the field, better than anywhere else I've been.

"Nobody has touched my heart more than Swans fans and to work closely again with them in the community and on matchdays is going to be an amazing experience for me. It's going to be a pleasure."

Swans chairman, Huw Jenkins, added. "Lee was a great player and ambassador for this football club when he was here. I know what the club means to him and how much the fans adore him so we are all delighted to welcome him back in this new role.

"It's an interesting new role that will coincide with an exciting schools and community initiative we will be announcing soon."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
