Reports today have started to link Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers with the possible vacancy at Spurs next season and while there may be other candidates besides, present Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has been fulsome in his praise of the Swansea boss.
Rodgers has taken his team from prime relegation candidates to tenth in the table ahead of Sunday’s game and the prospect of an immediate return to the Championship has all but disappeared.
“He’s someone who has a fantastic future,” Harry said.
“I don’t know what his long-term plans are but certainly the job he has done at Swansea has just been amazing.”
Harry also went on the salute Swansea’s style of play.
“I just think it has been fantastic that a team can come up and play the way they have played, pass the ball as they do,” he added.
“It’s so difficult to play them. They are fearless.”
Club captain Ledley King went on to echo that praise,
“They’ve been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League this season, the football they’ve played,” Ledley said.
“They’ve stuck to their methods and what they believe in and they deserve a lot of credit for what they’ve done this season.”
Swansea aren’t a side to be underestimated and although this game gives us the perfect opportunity to return to winning ways, Brendan Rodgers’ side won’t be making things easy.
