HASSELBAINK SAYS HE EXPECTS MORE INS AND OUTS AS SQUAD TAKES SHAPE

16 July 2021

JIMMY Floyd Hasselbaink says he expects more ins and outs in his squad before the transfer widow shuts.

The Brewers manager has added 10 new faces to his squad and is pleased to get the bulk of his business done early, but says the dealing hasn’t all been done yet.

He said: “We are not finished yet. We still need a few in in some areas and I think there will be some who are going. There is still business to be done.

“We had 12 players who were going, and we wanted to have the majority of the new players in for pre-season. There is a risk in that as at the end of the window there might be someone you really want but you have already filled the place. But we made a decision that the players we identified were opportunities we had to take and didn’t want to wait.”

Hasselbaink also says that he is thinking long term with his signings.

He said: “We want a core here that we can build on. The foundation here through the spine is very good.

“We have given some two-year contracts with options, and I wanted to balance the squad significantly, get two players in every position and have one or two who can play in four or five positions so there is good back up and the level is as high as possible and there’s good competition.

“We want people fighting for the shirt. They need to see there is someone on the bench or in training that is ready to take their place.”
