Rodgers: We Can Settle In Premier League

Rodgers: We Can Settle In Premier League

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he believes the club can improve and settle in the Premier League 'over the next two or three years'.

Rodgers is looking ahead to Saturday's game when they'll host Everton at the Liberty Stadium.

An excellent run of form has seen the Swans rise up to 8th in the table, and Rodgers is now looking for his side to finish as high in the League as possible, as safety from relegation looks to be guaranteed.

Rodgers told the Official Site that he is expecting a tough, but terrific game against Everton:

'Everton are a big club,'

'They may not have the money or resources of their neighbours but they are a massive club and they will still have investment there.

'David (Moyes) has done a consistently good job there over a number of years, and his team is a hallmark of what he has put in place at that club.

'No matter what structure they play they are very hard to beat and difficult to break down. So for us, all our positive elements of our game will need to be there on Saturday.

'But we look to our home games as great opportunities, particularly with our supporters here and it should be a terrific game.'


Rodgers also believes his Swansea City players have made him a better manager:

'We've come into the league and our path here has been a different one,'

'Our model, and how we work both on and off the field, is a different journey to a lot of teams.

'But for us, it was about improving the 'Swansea Way' and I believe that over the next two or three years, we can really settle into this league.

'The players have made me a better manager, hopefully I've made them better players and we want to continue to grow together.'
