Paulo Sousa Leaves Swansea City

Swansea City will release a statement at 9:30 on Monday morning to confirm Paulo Sousa's departure.

We posted an article earlier tonight that a Portuguese newspaper reported that he has signed a three-year contract at the Walkers Stadium.

Sousa's departure from Swansea City has been expected for the last few days. Doubts about his future at the Liberty Stadium started when bookmakers slashed their odds on him to replace Nigel Pearson at Leicester City. Newspapers like the Sun and News of the World, amongst other sources began reporting that he was all set to join the Foxes. Despite both Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric and Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins playing down such reports this week, Sousa's departure was expected to be officially confirmed as soon as compensation had been agreed between the two clubs.

The news comes as a big blow to the club and it's another huge setback to hinder our pre-season plans. Only 12 months ago were we looking for a new manager following Roberto Martinez's move to Wigan Athletic, and now the board will have to go through the entire process again.

There has been a lot of talk and speculation in recent months that Paulo Sousa and the board didn't enjoy a happy relationship, especially in the latter stages of his reign as manager. It began when Paulo showed his frustration at being rejected extra funds to sign loan players to boost our play-off chances in the Spring. You can read more about this on the Message Forum here

It's not a surprise now is it? It seems Huw Jenkins has been the last to know. Good riddance I say, let's get someone with a bit of loyalty and integrity and let's hope some attacking ideas. We finished 7th but last seaon was one of the least exciting I can remember in 40 years of supporting the Swans.
