Brendan Rodgers delighted with Swansea’s top-flight safety

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers is delighted at the fact his side are mathematically safe from relegation and has coined it as a ‘monumental achievement’.

The Swans’ enthrauling 4-4 home draw with relegated Wolves ensured that the Welsh club will continue to ply their trade in the Premier League next season.

The Jacks opened the scoring against Wolves on Saturday in style, Orlandi scored in the first minute of the game, with Joe Allen and Nathan Dyer hitting the back of the net minutes later.

Steven Fletcher got one back for the visitors soon after, only to see Danny Graham score another for the Welsh club two minutes later.

Matthew Jarvis made it 4-2 for Wolves on the half hour mark, and goals from David Edwards and Matthew Jarvis pulled up off a surprise away draw for Wolves in the second half.

Swansea have become renowned for their slick-passing, Barcelona-esque style of play in recent months, this coming in their first ever Premier League campaign.

Despite holding a number of giant-killing under his belt, Rodgers is still confident his side can improve going into next season’s top-flight campaign.

“[Staying up] is a monumental achievement,” Rodgers told TalkSport.

“I will think more over the next few days but for little Swansea City to have another season when the odds were against us, makes us really proud. I won’t forget that.”

Swansea have already defeated the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal at home this season, and have also pulled off a number of shock draws against the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea.

“I think it also shows that we are disappointed when we draw with teams like Bolton and Wolves, who have been in the division for years.

“There is still an awful lot of improvement in us as a group.”

Rogers has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, giving that Harry Redknapp leaves White Hart Lane for the England managerial position that was left vacant by the ismissal of Fabio Capello a few months back.

Swansea travel to Manchester United’s Old Trafford next Sunday, in a game that could very well seal the title race for Alex Ferguson’s men.
