"I don't think they'll be overly happy" - Manager on why Liverpool might not be pleased

Back in the summer, Liverpool centre-back Rhys Williams joined Swansea City on a season-long loan.

However, the 20-year-old has hardly featured for the Swans so far this season. Williams has only made four appearances for Swansea City.

With that being the case, Swans boss Russell Martin believes that Liverpool will not be happy with the youngster's lack of playing time.

As quoted by Anfield Watch's Academy Twitter account, Martin told the Liverpool Echo the following: "I don't think they'll be overly happy he's not involved.

"But we have to do what's right for our football team and our club. I think they understand what's gone on. We've been really supportive of Rhys during a tough period, but he's come through it brilliantly.

“He started in the team then had a little injury. The guys at Liverpool understand, they've been down to watch him train, they really enjoyed the environment and how hard he's working."


The whole point of Williams being loaned out was so that he could play regular senior football.

However, as we have pointed out, the centre-back has hardly played for Swansea City so far this season.

Williams was unavailable for two games back in September due to a minor injury. Therefore, fitness can't be used as an excuse for the centre-back's lack of playing time.

With that being the case, Martin is probably correct. We can't imagine Liverpool being entirely pleased with how Williams is being used at Swansea City.

Hopefully we see the youngster get more of an opportunity as the season progresses.
