The 59-year-old this week attended a coaching clinic headed by Swansea's bright young manager Brendan Rodgers.

He told the Dons' website: "It offered an interesting insight as Brendan was told by certain people that Swansea would not be able to play their football when they got promoted to the Premier League.

"Brendan was told that the Premier League was quicker and faster with players that would press and stop you playing. But Swansea stuck to their footballing principles and it has worked.
