Brendan wins Manager of the Month

Posted on: Fri 03 Feb 2012

Swans boss Brendan Rodgers is the proud winner of the Barclays Manager of the Month Award for January.

Victories over Aston Villa and Arsenal plus a draw against Chelsea clinched Brendan his first Premier League award since guiding the Swans into the top flight.

"I'm very proud to receive this award,'' beamed Brendan. "However, the award should be renamed Team of the Month.

"My players have been incredible in their courage to gain results while defending our footballing principles.


"The award recognises a lot of hard work by many people and we aim to continue our challenge to retain our status in this wonderful league.''


The winner was selected by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

The Swans won praise from the panel for the manner in which they have "adapted to the demands of the top flight without compromising their fluid, passing style of play".

The Swans began January by registering a first away victory of the season at Aston Villa, their first win on the road in the top flight since 1982.

The highlight of the month then followed as Brendan's boys returned home to defeat Barclays Premier League giants Arsenal 3-2, with goals from Scott Sinclair, Nathan Dyer and Danny Graham.

Despite suffering defeat away at Sunderland, the Swans bounced back to register an impressive 1-1 draw against Chelsea at the Liberty, finishing the month well clear of the danger zone in 14th place.
