Russell Martin’s former assistant manager Luke Williams has been appointed as the new head coach of Swansea City.
Williams previously worked under Martin at MK Dons and Swansea before leaving the South Wales club.
He then took the top job at Notts County, where he led them to promotion to the National League last season.
The 42-year-old left the Magpies in fifth place in League Two after 26 games. “I want to score goals, a lot of goals, and I have quite a good track record of that,” he told the Swansea press team.
“We must be angry too. A one-dimensional team is good, but a real team is one that attacks with the same energy as it defends.
“It will be a big task. We need to aim for something fantastic, and we’re starting to do that now.”
Williams’ first home game as Swansea manager will likely see him face his former manager Martin.
Southampton travel to South Wales on Saturday, January 20, just under a month after beating the Swans 5-0 on Boxing Day.
