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

Molby Not Interested In Swansea Job

Former Swansea City manager Jan Molby says he is not interested in making a return to his former club, or football management in general.

However, he believes that Joe Royle is the best man for the job and he told BBC SPORT: 'Joe Royle's an experienced man, he knows the level and I'm sure he could fulfil Swansea City's ambitions,'

'It's not just the Swansea job I'm not interested in, it's football management in general.'


He also added that the Swans should be looking for a manager with some experience. 'It's a very ambitious outfit and promotion is what they are after,'

'So they're probably looking for a youngish manager with some experience - somebody between 38 and 45.

'There are one or two of those young managers available who have just left clubs at a higher level.

'If you look at the likes of Nigel Worthington who has just left Norwich and Kevin Blackwell who has left Leeds.

'There is also Phil Parkinson who managed Colchester before he moved to Hull and is now the assistant at Charlton.'

'Dean Saunders is a favourite son down in Swansea and he's done extremely well.

'He's got good coaching qualifications, worked at the highest level with Graeme Souness at various clubs.

'Whether he's ready or not? I think it would be a gamble.'

Dean Saunders would be an interesting appointment given his background. Worth a shout?

To appoint Dean Saunders or another new to management - miss out on playoffs and you have to put it down to inexperience. Therefore someone like Joe Royle will have experience and a wise head to perhaps get us into the playoffs.
