Former French international and World Cup winner Marcel Desailly has praised Swansea City after watching us beat Burnley 1-0 on Saturday.

Desailly was at the Liberty Stadium as he undertakes his coaching badges in Wales, and he watched what was another good home performance from the Swans and he praised Brendan Rodgers and his side.

“This is a team that can get better and better,”

“They secured the game well in the second half, but all the way through the game you could see the movement is there and they are tactically very well set up.

“They have a quality coach with a good background and I think this team could push on. I know the manager has not been in charge long, but I have been talking to him about how he sets up his players and you can definitely see he knows what he`s talking about – and it`s clearly working.”


After a two-week international break, Swansea City are next in action away at Leeds United on Saturday 11th September. On the following Tuesday we’re home against Coventry City.
