'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jenkins Aims To Appoint New Manager This Week

Huw Jenkins says he's looking to appoint a new manager within the next few days, but he still insists they are in no rush to replace Paulo Sousa.

The Swansea City chairman had hopes of recruiting a new boss by Monday 12th July, but following a number of setbacks in their search for a new manager, Jenkins has told Skysports that he now hopes to have a new man in place this week.

The fans are beginning to get impatient now as we're still managerless with less than a month to go before the new Championship begins on August 7th.

The big question amongst the supporters now is whether or not the board can appoint another successful manager like they've done in the last few years. Brian Flynn transformed the squad back in 2003-2004 - we finished in the top half of League 2 having avoided relegation the previous year. Kenny Jackett then arrived and won us promotion to League One, before losing in the Play-Off final the following season. Roberto Martinez then followed and he stook us one step further, as we won the League One title and developed us into a top half Championship side. Paulo Sousa achieved our highest League position in nearly 3 decades last year, but it wasn't enough to win over the support of the fans of the board.

It's been a high turnover for managers you could say, but each one has helped the club progress during their time at Swansea City. Huw Jenkins and the board have one of their toughest manager appointments to make now, as the pressure is on to find someone who can maintain our recent success in the second tier of English football.

Jenkins told Sky Sports:

'We're obviously still working to finalise a few details. Ideally, we'd have liked to have somebody in before now.

'In the next few days we should be able to sort things out, get things moving and get our manager in.'
