Boss says money generated in the summer will keep us ticking over nicely
Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis say he is not pressurised by Chairman John Bowler and the board of directors to sell any more of his assets in the January Transfer Window. Davis oversaw the major sales of Nick Powell and Ashley Westwood to Premier League clubs and striker Shaun Miller also headed for a new challenge at League One rivals Sheffield United after finding his chances limited.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “We have sold two of our best players in the summer, so we don’t need to sell. We want our better players to remain with us and for us to make progress.
“I know how things work at Crewe and when our players are ready to go to the next level then they go with our blessing. We never stop them having that opportunity if it suits us and them.
“Dario spoke about having to sell a £1 million player every two years to keep the club going and to remain in business and we do that. We have sold Nick and Ash and got a good amount of money up front for them, so that has made up for the barren spell of not selling for a couple of years.
“That is how it works and we will continue to bring our own players on and sell them on when they are ready.”
