Rodgers: 'I shouldn't have left'
With just 48 hours to go before Brendan Rodgers much-anticipated return to Vicarage Road the Ulsterman has finally admitted he was wrong to jump ship to join Championship rivals Reading.
Talking to Wales Online the new Swansea City chief conceded that the manner in which he left WD18 was 'unfortunate'.
"It was unfortunate the way it ended with Watford.
"My gut feeling at the time was to leave, but there is no doubt, when I look back in hindsight that I shouldn`t have.'
The former Chelsea coach went on to make a patronising attempt to empathise with Hornet's fans in what can only be describe as the most egotistical manner as humanly possible:
"There was the disappointment of giving the supporters hope that they had someone in charge who was going to be in the job for two, three or four years to help them grow again.
"They loved my style of football and the way we were playing. We were going from strength to strength, but then all of a sudden I went.'
All very noble of you Mr Rodger's but don't expect it to cut you any slack come Tuesday night; the fact that this fixture has come up midweek has probably spared you a couple of hundred extra angry Hornet's anyway!
