'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Britton Reveals Rodgers' Motivational Speech

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton explains the motivational speech Rodgers gave to the players at half time during the Manchester City game.

After a dominating goalless first half against the then league leaders Manchester City, Rodgers gave a speech that helped to motivate and inspire his players to the club's best League win in a few decades at least.

Britton explained how good Rodgers is at motivating the players in the dressing room, he told the Official Site:

Before every game the squad comes together in a huddle in the dressing room where the manager says his final words in the middle,''

'He told us that we had come a long way and was proud of what we had achieved, but when the Man City players shook our hands at the end of the first game at the Etihad Stadium they still probably didn't know who we were.

'He told us to go out at the Liberty and take the game to them. That way, when we shake their hands at the end of the game, we can look them in the eye and make sure they know who we are this time.

'Then when we came in at half-time, he told us that we had dominated the best team in the league and whatever happened in the second 45 minutes they know who you are now.

'It gave us all a massive boost. But that's what the gaffer does, he's a fantastic motivator and while I know he will dedicate the 'Performance of the Week' award to the team, we did it for him and the fans.''
