Steve: "Pressure In Any Job You Do"

2 August 2016

Steve Davis says he understands the pressure a football manager is placed upon but he looks to embrace it.

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis says that there is always pressure when it comes to football management but he is confident he can get the Railwaymen back to winning ways in League Two this season.

The Crewe boss is targeting a positive start to the new campaign and he is determined to bring a winning mentality back to the club following the disappointment of relegation last season.

Ahead of the opening day of the season at Stevenage, Steve said: “Any manager will tell you that they want a good start and I’m no different. We have worked hard and hopefully things will go for us.

“Sometimes you need a bit of luck to build momentum and win games. Sometimes a decision may go against you and you cannot control it. You just hope it goes for you on the day.

“We are looking to start well and build confidence. That comes from winning games and it is important that we develop a winning habit inside the club. We don’t want to accept defeat too easily and make sure we are a lot better. We want to have that winning mentality this season.

“There is always pressure in any job but it is especially high in football management because of the expectation levels. Dealing with pressure is part of the job and it is probably harder when you are at the bottom rather than the top. It is an easier pressure to deal with when you are challenging at the top.

The boss added: “We put pressure on ourselves here. There is just as much pressure within as there is from outside. We want the same as the supporters. We want to win games for them and make that happen as a collective.”
