NEW Saints manager Nathan Jones expressed his excitement about working with Sport Republic’s Rasmus Ankersen and discussed plans for the January transfer window.
Jones, hired last week to replace former boss Ralph Hasenhuttle, has long been admired by former boss Brentford Ankersen.
The Dane is said to have been instrumental in the selection of Luton Town manager over Hasenhüttl, who had been with the club for nearly four years.
The 49-year-old Welshman is openly excited about continuing the relationship and wants to make sure the communication is “really good”.
He said: “There is a real process going on here that I am really looking forward to, especially working with someone like Rasmus who is really influential and innovative in everything.
“I am very excited about this relationship. I don’t talk on the phone and I don’t have a bat phone to call her all the time, but if we need to meet, we will.
“I have people I answer to and I have direct connections and stuff like that, but I want to make sure the communication is really good, my relationship is really good, and then we can all move forward and have a good time. do business.” function”.
The Sport Republic may have to keep their hands in their pockets to back their new boss as the Saints sit 19th in the Premier League until at least Boxing Day.
Just two league games – against Brighton and Fulham – and an EFL Cup draw against Sheffield Wednesday separate us from the January transfer window.
Jones, who has taken on his first high-profile job, was asked about the possibility of winter spending that would cheer up his team and improve his chances of survival.
“I’m looking forward to working with the players that we have,” he said. “And then if there’s something that we need and if there’s a structure and a reason for it, I’m sure (the owners) will take it and reinforce it.
“The owners want to be successful here. But they want to do it at the right pace. They are not going to lose £160m in the transfer window.
“What we are going to do is that we will have a real structure, we will work and we will see what we need, evaluate and make the right decisions, and this is how football clubs should work.
“I have done this in the past at good clubs, not only at Luton Town but also at Brighton where there is a real recruiting process and structure. I’m delighted with it.”
