Rodgers: Man City Game Is A 'Massive Challenge'

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says the season opener at Manchester City is a 'massive challenge'.

The Swans kick off their Premier League season two days later than most teams as their match at the Etihad Stadium will be shown live on Sky Sports on Monday 15th August, kick off at 8pm.

Rodgers spoke about the opening game and said:

'It will be a massive challenge, if you look at Manchester City it is a club that is really moving forward,'

'They are looking, I suppose, to be one of the superpowers of European football with the finances that they have, but I also think they are trying to build something there and it's not just a case of totally throwing loads of money at it.

'They have got some great people behind the scenes like (football administrator) Brian Marwood and obviously the manager has been brought in to try and influence their progress.

'But for us we will do what we have always done. We have big respect for every opponent that we play, but the idea is always to focus on our own strengths and hopefully cause Manchester City problems.'

'We are very honoured to be the first Welsh club to get into the Premier League and we hope we can do the badge, the club and the country as a whole very proud. We will fight for our life to try and compete in the league.'

No Chance Lads but you have to take it with stride. Don't get too depressed if the goals tally are up to 6. but I just hope my boy Sinclair can nick a goal there for me.
