Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins accepts blame for poor start to season

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins accepts responsibility for the club's current turmoil following just two wins in 14 Premier League games.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has accepted responsibility for the club's tumultuous start to the Premier League season.

The Welsh outfit currently sit at the bottom of the table after picking up just nine points from a possible 42.

Fans have begun turning on the board due to the club recording just two wins all season, which has left them three points from safety after 14 games.

During last weekend's 5-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, groups of supporters called for Jenkins to step down from his role.

The arrival of American businessmen Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien to the board has also not been warmly received, while questions were raised when ex-USA head coach Bob Bradley replaced Francesco Guidolin as manager in October.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Jenkins said: "I fully understand their feelings, being a supporter myself. When things don't go well somebody has to take the blame and I fully accept the responsibility. But let's not forget there's a long way to go this season, and we've got a lot of choices to make between now and then to make sure we compete and to get points to survive in this league.

"There might have been one or two decisions we could have taken in the summer that may have changed the feel around the club. I'm not going to go in to detail, we may have gone down one or two different routes, may have recruited a few players differently.

"But we are where we are, we've got to everything in our power to make sure we turn our fortunes around. We need everyone to be 100% behind the team."

With just one win in 13, Swansea welcome Sunderland to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
