Routledge: Swans bear no Sinclair grudge

Wayne Routledge insists no Swansea players hold a grudge against Scott Sinclair for moving to Manchester City as they prepare to meet their former team-mate for this first time since his exit.

• Keegan: Man City will respond
• Preview: Man City v Swansea
• Mancini defends tactical tinkering

Sinclair made his move to City towards the end of the summer transfer window after informing Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins he did not want to negotiate a new contract with the club.

Despite being the hero in their successful Championship play-off win, which earned them promotion to the Premier League, Sinclair was booed by the Swans fans when he made his final appearance for the club in the opening day win over QPR.

However, Routledge stated the players understood Sinclair's motive and harbour no ill feeling.

"People get on well here and we all wish each other the best," Routledge said. "Scott had a chance to go and joining the champions and he took that opportunity. I haven't spoken to Scott for a little while because he's had a lot to do up there, he's moving, but I'm sure we'll catch up on Saturday."

Routledge has been a major beneficiary of Sinclair's departure having been given the chance to cement a permanent first-team place for Swansea. The midfielder has been key for Michael Laudrup's side this season having scored two goals already and recognises the Danish manager's faith in him has given his confidence a real boost.

"For me, on a personal note, it's going well, I'm playing games, making chances and scoring goals so I can't ask for much more. People can ask you to pinpoint what it is, but I'm not sure. I'm playing more and that's probably given me a bit more confidence and now you're seeing the best of me.

"It's definitely up there (with the best form of my career), I'm enjoying my football every time I step out on the pitch and every time we train.

"That's a nice feeling because that's when you get the best out of players. I just want to keep playing well, keep making chances and maybe keep scoring more goals.''

Swansea head to the Etihad Stadium on the back of last weekend's morale-boosting win over Wigan, and will face a City side under pressure after their midweek drubbing in the Champions League against Ajax.

Routledge believes the Dutch team's 3-1 victory shows there is nothing to fear for the visitors going into a game few expect them to get a positive result from, although he is under no illusion about the size of the challenge facing the Swans.

"The Etihad has become something of a fortress for them there, but we've got to go there in a positive frame of mind," he said. "As footballers, they're in the higher echelons but sometimes you have games when it doesn't click.

"That seems to be what happened the other night, it wasn't the usual Manchester City. But when you play Manchester City whatever they do it's going to be a really hard game on Saturday. We have to get our minds right and be ready from the start.''
