Jon Whitney: Manager Vows to Prove His Doubters Wrong

12:08 pm Friday, 9 March 2018
Jon Whitney has vowed to keep fighting - insisting he is determined to prove the doubters wrong.
Underfire Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with title-chasing Shrewsbury Town, and vowed to keep fighting - insisting he is determined to prove the doubters wrong.

Whitney, who has been in charge of the Saddlers for more than two-years, is under increasing pressure as his side continues to struggle for form, often following up a victory with a defeat.

Jon was speaking via the Express & Star and said; "I don’t like saying I’ve been through hard times because when you see what’s going on around the world and what some people have to do deal with, this is nothing in comparison to that.

"But I’ve been in some real crappy jobs – grave digging, plastics recycling, packing shelves in Asda and Superdrug. Some real low moments. Because I’ve got so much drive, I’ve got to where I am now through hard work and determination.

"Also, I keep developing my skill set. I’m close to finishing my A Licence now. I’ve done that and my B Licence in two years. I’m a first-time manager, over two years now – very proud of that.

"I understand I’ve come in for a lot of criticism but, I tell you what, I came into this expecting criticism. I’m still here fighting and one thing I will say is that I’ll always fight. I’ll always try to prove people wrong and that’s exactly what I’ll keep doing."
