Rodgers Praises Player of the Year - Nathan Dyer

Rodgers Praises Player of the Year - Nathan Dyer

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped special praise on winger Nathan Dyer after he was named the club's Player of the Year.

The former Southampton winger fully deserved the award for his fantastic and consistent performances this season, and Rodgers said it's been a pleasure to work with him this season.

'I am delighted for Nathan because I have really enjoyed working with him this season,'

'He is still young and hungry, which is important for me, and he is a player who wants to learn.

'He has the potential to go on and play in the Premier League. He has the capacity to play at that level as long as he continues developing.

'At the top level he will come up against players who are as quick if not quicker than him.

'That's when your football intelligence is called upon, and that's a side of Nathan I have seen improve week-in, week-out.'


Dyer won 36% of the Evening Post readers' vote to pick up the award yesterday at the awards ceremony held at the Liberty Stadium.

Rodgers added:

'I communicate a lot with Nathan and he is focused on being the best player he can,'

'This season he has consistently performed at a high level. He will want to improve his goal ratio, but we're working on that.

'He is now getting into the right positions. He looks like he wants to score and that's half the battle.

'I have no doubt he will improve on that front next season.

'But the goals are not a massive concern to me because he gives great balance to the team. His function in the team is very important.'

'He had some difficulties early in his career, but since I walked in here I've had no problems with Nathan,'

'He is a terrific young man — very clever and very intelligent.

'I talk straight with him. I tell him where he needs to improve but also how terrific he has been.

'He has a lovely glint in his eye and his enthusiasm is incredible. He loves his football, and that's the type of player I love working with.

'Hopefully he feels he has a manager who believes in his qua- lities and who can improve him.'
