Rodgers: Dyer Is A 'Terrific Talent'

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has praised Nathan Dyer, saying he is a 'terrific talent'.

The 5-foot 5-inch right winger has proved to be one of the most consistent performers at the club - rarely having a bad game since his move from Southampton in 2009.

While he does lack a goalscoring edge to his game, he makes up for it in effort, determination, skill, pace and overall quality. He's probably the most fouled player in the Swansea City team, helping the side win a number of set-pieces and penalties to help get us vital points. A good example was on Saturday when his trickery forced Gardner to be sent off for two bookable fouls on Nathan Dyer.

Brendan Rodgers even says that if he can keep performing as well and as consistently as he is, he's got 'every chance' of getting a call-up to the England team.

'I think he has been excellent in a lot of the games,'

'Any opponents will find him very difficult to deal with him. We have seen him do that to many full-backs. He is a terrific talent.

'Our mentality is to create and be on the front foot. We open up the pitch, get good width and our game is to get the ball into wide areas and we know when we get there we have the players to make a difference. I thought Nathan was brilliant at that. He gets after people.'

'Look at the reality, Matt Jarvis (the Wolves winger) was called in. [to the England team]. If you're looking at wingers who can play football then the international managers will come here and see that there are players who have stepped into this level and are playing very well. But there's a way to go yet.

'The boys have got great talents and if they continue to prove what they have been proving up until now then they have every chance.'

I can't see that Lennon is any better---if he was playing for a big club, he'd have been called up for England by now. By far our best player so far this season, his workrate is fantastic.
