    He didn't say, as he would later, that he was forced to act like that.

    Hello all forum users!

    Does the sentence "He didn't say, as he would later, that he was forced to act like that" mean "He didn't say right away that he was forced to act like that, yet, he said that later"?

    Do I get it right?

    What is the meaning of "as he would"?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you're right. It means something like in the way that/like he would later.
