Rodgers Believes Swans Can Finish Higher Than 17th

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers believes his side are good enough to finish higher than 17th in the Premier League this season.

The Irishman is upbeat about his side's chances in the English top flight and says they can prove all the doubters wrong. The Swans are strong favourites amongst most pundits and bookmakers out there, but they'll looking to surprise a lot of people in the upcoming campaign.

A 17th place would see us consolidate our Premier League place for another season, but Rodgers says his squad have the potential to finish higher:

'We understand the scale of the task, not only on Monday but throughout the season, but we will look at it and take every positive we can from our own game and hopefully cause problems to the other teams.

'We are competing against Manchester City on Monday night - a club who have trillions of pounds. Not just millions or billions - trillions. But that won't stop us fighting.

'I would absolutely take 17th if we were given that now, but there is no reason we can't do a lot better.

'The reality is we want to finish as high as we can. I won't be telling the players to finish 17th because I believe we can be higher than that.

'Of course, the miracle would be to stay in the league and try to make this club a sustainable one.

'It's a massive achievement to arrive here but it is a bigger one to stay here.

'We know it will be a roller-coaster ride but I'm excited about the challenge.'


Swansea City's first challenge in the Premiership couldn't be much tougher with a trip to Manchester City on Monday 15th August.
