Im ready for challenge​

After a poor string of friendlies Manager Dennis Bergkamp is still confident about Walsall's chances this season. ' This season we have to work very hard to live up to the expectations what have been put on are team, We have a very good squad here at the moment what a capable of great things but we need to keep are feet on the ground and keep working hard so we can reach are targets'.

' Im very pleased about the signings so far but i feel we need a few more faces to balance this very small team out'. Of course the signing of my good friend Robert Pires raised many eye brows that a player of his capability joined Walsall but see he knew the ambition of the club and thats why he joined.​
