Rodgers: Ferguson's Line-Up Complimented Us

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers said Alex Ferguson's choice of line-up for Saturday's game was a compliment to his team.

Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of Manchester United, named a strong line-up for Saturday's game at the Liberty Stadium, and Rodgers says it was a compliment that he decided not to name a weakened team.

United edged the game 1-0, with Hernandez scoring the vital winning goal early on following a poor error and pass from Rangel.

Manchester United's hard-work, pressing and organisation made it difficult for the Swans to get into their typical passing game. Despite an improved performance in the second half and having more possession, United's 1-0 lead looked pretty safe.

Rodgers said:

'I told the players the biggest compliment you can get is that they put their most hard working team out there,'

'You know when Sir Alex Ferguson puts the likes of Park, Rooney, Ferdinand and Vidic out there that they mean business, he puts them in the big games.

'He knew it was going to be difficult, I thought it was a massive compliment for us.

'It was a good performance from us and there was plenty there that we can take into the Aston Villa game next weekend.'
