Swans Hoping To Appoint Manager By Monday

Swans Hoping To Appoint Manager By Monday

Swansea City say they are working 'very hard' to try and appoint a new manager by Monday.

"Steve Nicol is interested in the job apparantly."
Gary Speed has been the strong favourite for the job recently, but after Sheffield United rejected our approach for their first team coach, chairman Huw Jenkins says they will pursue other targets on their shortlist.

He has also revealed that he could look at Lower League managers as the search continues to replace Paulo Sousa.

'Myself and the board will be working very hard in order to have someone in position on Monday.

'I've seen the names being linked with us in the papers, but I don't understand why people are not looking at the managers who are doing a great job under a limited budget at other clubs lower down the leagues.

'Look at Paul Trollope (pictured above) at Bristol Rovers for example - he's done very well there. There's Terry Skiverton at Yeovil, who is doing a good job. Keith Hill at Rochdale has done a great job, while Eddie Howe is another to have done very well at Bournemouth.'


Despite Jenkins ruling out a move for Gary Speed due to the Blades rejecting permission to speak to the Welshman, he is still favourite amongst the bookies. Gianfranco Zola is joint favourite at Victor Chandler - both at 2/1. Graeme Jones is 3/1 and Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope is 12/1.
