I'd Walk Over Hot Coals To Manage Swansea

I'd Walk Over Hot Coals To Manage Swansea

Former Welsh international John Hartson said he would 'walk over hot coals' to manage Swansea City in the top flight.

The retired striker always said how he wanted to end his career playing at his hometown club but it never happened, but now he's hoping for a chance to manage the Swans instead.

Hartson has just finished his UEFA A-licence coaching badge and he told the Daily Mail:

'Several clubs have been made aware of me. I would walk over hot coals to take Swansea into the Premier League.

'I have a lot to give to coaching and management and that is what I want to do.'


Hartson has also been linked with the Motherwell job if Mark McGhee leaves to take over at Celtic.

"Not sure many managers will want to be told how to play the game. So perhaps this will narrow the choice down to existing managers who already play real football, Tilson, Hughes, De Matteo, for starters. The downside of that is, we do not want to pay any compensation to another club, which will cut down on the kitty available for new players."

i think that hartson would do a good job for us but i would prefer to see some1 from the continent take over as i dont think the style of football we wana play would suit hartson as manager

don't think Hartson would be the right man, he only wants to manage us as a swansea fan, and what would his training levels be, he was never the fitest player about
