Rodgers: Swans can be top-ten side again
BRENDAN Rodgers is backing Swansea City to be a top-ten side again this season.
The Liverpool boss — who guided his former club into the Premier League in 2011 — returns to the Liberty Stadium this evening.
And while Liverpool are unbeaten in three matches, Rodgers is well aware of the problems Swansea will present tonight.
“When I went there in the first year our record signing was only £500,000 for Scott Sinclair,” he said.
“We got into the Premier League and spent £7 million net and our highest signing was £3.5 million and that seemed a lot at that time.
“You look at it this summer and they’ve spent £12 million on Wilfried Bony and I’m sure will again be vying for a top-10 spot again.
“They have got a tough week ahead of them – a game against ourselves, Valencia in the Europa League and then a game on Sunday, but that’s why they have built their squad."
