'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rodgers 'Proud' To Become Swansea Manager

Brendan Rodgers says he is very 'proud' to become Swansea City's new manager.

The former Watford and Reading boss was officially confirmed today at the Liberty Stadium and replaces Paulo Sousa - now at Leicester City. The 37 year-old has put pen to paper on a 12-month rolling contract.

Rodgers, who has also worked with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea when he was Youth Team Manager, says he aims to be a winner at the club, and is looking to continue our philosophy of playing attractive attacking football.

"Brendon who? Come on sort it out."
The 37 year-old is looking forward to the challenge, and it could be one of the toughest of his management career so far. It'll be tough to continue the progress the club has experienced under previous managers such as Paulo Sousa and Roberto Martinez. The former guided us to our best League finish in 27 years last year - 7th in the Championship, and Rodgers would do a superb job if he managed to come close to that achievement next season.

Rodgers said:

'It's a very proud moment for me,''

'I'm very proud to become manager of Swansea City; a progressive club that plays the game the right way.

'My aim is continue that philosophy and help the club progress. I want to play offensive, attacking football, but with discipline.

'I will inherit a wonderful group of players and, if I can help them develop and improve, I will be very pleased.

'I've seen the passion of the Swansea fans for myself when I was here last season and I can assure them I've come here to be a winner.

'I'm really looking forward to the challenge.''


We wish him all the very best, and we look forward to a new era with Brendan Rodgers at the helm!

i think a few swansea fans need to shut up and put up and give this bloke a chance!! Im 110% behind the desion and think a good british manager is what we needed because sousa didnt care about the club!!

To be honest he would not be my first choice but lets give him a chance and get behind him and the players UP THE JACKS

I'm happy to give him the chance to earn his longest stays in charge of a club, but seriously, I can't say I really know about this manager, but we all need to show our support, hey some of the better managers we've had were fairly obscure at the time. I'd also like to hope that we might learn from a manager how these tactics work when procuring from other clubs, just like what always seems to happen to us (Players & Managers). We need to know how to do it back!!!

Sorry to keep going, but now we have a manager, let's all unite and behind Mr.Rodgers & pave to way for some more signings on the field, without it nobody will want to come to us.
