Rodgers fears FIFA could wreck Swansea survival chances

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers fears FIFA could wreck their survival chances.

Rodgers was yesterday finally given the green light by Fifa to rubber-stamp ­27-year-old defender Federico Bessone's return to the Liberty Stadium from Leeds.

But the Swans boss is still sweating on international clearance for two defenders - £250,000 ­Lens signing Darnel Situ, 19, and ­Fulham loan man Rafik Halliche, 25.

And Rodgers is clearly worried, saying: "The signings should not be any problem with the Premier League - but there is something with Fifa over whether the deadline was missed.

"It would obviously leave us in a very vulnerable position if things didn't go through."
