Rodgers: Emnes Will Go Down In Folklore

Rodgers: Emnes Will Go Down In Folklore

Brendan Rodgers pays special tribute to match winner Marvin Emnes after scoring in today's 1-0 win away at Cardiff City.

The on-loan Middlesbrough striker scored a great goal with 16 minutes of the game remaining to give us victory in the big South Wales derby.

Emnes' is available for just one more game for the Swans before his loan ends and he returns to the Riverside Stadium, but Rodgers is still not ruling out his chances of keeping him.

'It was a terrific goal, he'll obviously go down in folklore with Swans fans after that,'

'He's taken the ball in and made a wonderful turn... he's shown great quality since he's been with us.'

'He fits perfectly into our style and our identity as a team, and he's a good guy as well so we'll see what happens in the next week or so.'


Rodgers also talked about how it felt to be involved in his first South Wales derby and win:

'It feels very good; it's obviously my first derby.

'The build-up was very big and I'm obviously delighted.

'It was very important as there was a lot of emotion and history involved. It was important for the fans and for our position in the league.

'We were paid a massive compliment by Cardiff because they changed their structure and team to match up our three in midfield.

'We started to get control of the game, especially in the second half when we created a number of chances. We thoroughly deserved it.

'We needed a strong team ethos in attack and defence and you could see that against a top, top team who have scored many goals.

'Take away all the emotion from it and it's another three points.

'We'll take each game as it comes. We're feeling very strong and this moves us closer to the top two so we'll keep going and improving day by day.'
