McCarthy - Jon Whitney is the Right Man to Take the Club Forward

Southampton defender Jason McCarthy has spoken to the local press and discussed his belief that the club will finish next season higher up the table before backing Saddlers manager Jon Whitney, insisting that the 46-year-old is the man to take the club forward.
On-loan Southampton defender Jason McCarthy, who will return to his parent club following a season-loan spell at Banks's Stadium which saw him play in over fifty games, has spoken to the local press and discussed his belief that the club will finish next season higher up the table, before backing Saddlers manager Jon Whitney, insisting that the 46-year-old is the man to take the club forward.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jason said; "Walsall will be higher next season. Believe me, they will be pushing. The club is in great hands with the manger. When you think of the players they left last year, it was a big rebuilding job. We've now come through the first year of that.

"1000 per cent he is the right man for the job. All the players are with him. The staff are with him. It was not nice when we heard some chants against him when we played MK Dons. You understand fans’ frustrations but we, as players, take the blame as well.

"It’s not just one man and he is 1000 per cent the right man to take the club forward. Walsall are lucky to have him."
