Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has hailed Brendan Rodgers's impact at Swansea, and called for more home-grown managers in the Barclays Premier League.

Pardew worked alongside the Swansea boss during his time in charge at Reading, where Rodgers was youth team coach, and has watched on impressed this season as the Swans claimed a win over Manchester City, held Chelsea to a draw and sit well above the relegation battle.

Pardew praised their attacking flair and 39-year-old Rodgers, saying: "He's always had a very clear vision of how the game should be played and he's stuck to his principles and I admire him very much for that."
