‘NO­BODY WANTS TO SIGN LOSERS’

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

BOSS Gary Wad­dock has warned his en­tire Ox­ford squad they are fight­ing for their fu­tures.

The U’s have made an in­aus­pi­cious start un­der Wad­dock, who took over in March, and with sev­eral con­tracts up for re­newal this sum­mer he in­sists no one is safe from the exit door.

“We have lost far too many matches and I don’t want that at this foot­ball club,” he said.

“This is a very good foot­ball club. It is fan­tas­ti­cally sup­ported and it needs to be ad­dressed, sim­ple as that.

“Play­ers are play­ing for their ca­reers and fu­tures whether they are un­der con­tract or not.”

Cap­tain Jake Wright’s con­tract is ex­pir­ing and he knows win­ning is the only way to get a new deal.

“If this club doesn’t want you then other clubs are go­ing to look at our record and see we haven’t been good enough in re­cent months,” he said.

“Man­agers are not go­ing to want los­ing foot­ballers and that is what we are.”
