Toshack full of praise for Swansea pair Britton, Routledge

Former Barcelona and Real Madrid coach John Toshack is a big fan of Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton.

The Swansea's midfielder, who has played an integral part in the club's rise through the four divisions, has been tipped for an England cap.

"He's a terrific player," Toshack told the Daily Mail. "But I wonder if, at the age of 30, international football has passed him by. I think as a team Swansea operate better than their individual talents suggest.

"That includes Wayne Routledge, who has found it difficult to settle at a number of clubs but is playing his best football at Swansea."
