Rodgers: Swansea veterans deserved Premier League chance

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers says many of his squad should have been long playing in the Premier League before now.

The Swans face Manchester United tonight.

Rodgers said: "I've looked at players like Mark Gower, Garry Monk and Leon Britton, guys who have spent many years in the lower levels, and it's a shame that it's taken until 32, 33 years of age to show that they can play at this level.

"It's taken these guys a long time to get to this and they are determined to take the opportunity."
