Rhian Brewster is predicting a bright future for Swansea City under Steve Cooper following the end of the forward’s loan spell in SA1.

He 20-year-old scored 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Swans after arriving from Liverpool in January.

The move saw him link up with Cooper – who Brewster had worked with at Liverpool and England age-grade level – and their reunion proved a successful one, even though the Swans would suffer play-off disappointment against Brentford.

And the striker only had positive things to say about the head coach, and what lies ahead for Swansea.

“This is his first league managerial experience and he took us to the play-offs,” said Brewster.

“When you look at that, I can see Swansea doing big things next year.

“Okay, as players we messed up a little bit at the end and missed out on by one goal, but I can see them doing big things.

“Maybe I’ll be part of it, maybe I won’t, I honestly don’t know. But this has been an important period for me.  

“I came to Swansea without any real first-team experience, I had played a couple of games for Liverpool in the cup, but this has been physically very hard.

“I have never done this before and after the restart we had a game every few days, and my body hasn’t been used to that.

“I think I have developed a lot, and my mind has as well, to keep going no matter what.

“You can see we just kept going to the end and kept pushing, but it just didn’t happen.”
