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

Ferguson Says Swans Have Been Admirable

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says Swansea City have been 'admirable' in the Premier League this season.

His side will be looking to bounce back following the 1-0 defeat at their arch rivals Manchester City on Monday, while the Swans will want to impress and end their season on a high.

Ferguson praised the Swans and their style of football, he said:

'The way Swansea have played this season has been admirable,'

'They have played some fantastic attacking football. Their manager has insisted on that and stuck by his principles.

'They have had a fantastic season. They look as if they are enjoying their game. They all want the ball and want to play.

'When you talk about how you pick manager of the year, there always has to be a consideration about the resources.

'Brendan Rodgers came out of the Championship and only brought two players in, Danny Graham from Watford and Gylfi Sigurdsson from Germany, and even that was not for a big financial outlay.

'He stuck by the players who got them into the Premier League and they have rewarded him.'
