Swansea City sacked Garry Monk on Tuesday following a poor start to the 2015/16 premier league season and fans of the Walsh club eagerly awaits who will be announced as their next manager.
Chairman Huw Jenkins is already looking at four exciting prospect for the club and 366football.com brings you a low down on the names mentioned so far for the job which includes Avram Grant, Brendan Rodgers, David Moyes, and Ryan Giggs.
Avram Grant: He is very experienced having started way back in 1986 with Hapoel Petah Tikva but still relevant in the modern game as he once took Chelsea to the UEFA Champions League final where he unfortunately lost to Manchester United and earlier this year he again lost another final as his Ghana side lost out to Ivory Coast in the African Nations Cup.
Already the Ghana FA are preparing coach of that Cote d’Ivoire side he lost to, Herve Renard, as the next Black Stars manager if he decides to leave the job – Renard is currently without a job since he was fired by Lille of France.
A short spell at Partizan Belgrade soon followed before being a beaten finalist again with Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations. He started his career at Hapoel Petah Tikva in 1986 before two stints with Maccabi Tel Aviv and stays at Hapoel Haifa, Maccabi Haifa.
Brendan Rodgers: The former Liverpool manager has been created with developing the brand of football Swansea plays. The team is fluid with their passing game and their attractive way of playing has won admirers down the years.
Rodgers may just be the easier fit for the Walsh side as he left the club for Anfield to push greener pastures now he has the opportunity of going back to the club that gave him an in road into the premier league.
David Moyes: The former Manchester United manager even if it’s only for ten months looks like the more experienced to handle the side because of his wealth experience in the premier league having managed Everton for 11 seasons.
Moyes brand of football may be slightly different from the ‘Swansea way’ as he likes his teams to be organized defensively instead of passing and attacking at every given chance but his recent experience in Spain with Real Sociedad maybe an added advantage for the Scot.
Ryan Giggs: The Manchester United legend was the last name to be mentioned on the wish-list but he might be the Pep Guardiola for Swansea because of his expressive way of playing like we saw when he was temporarily in-charge at Old Trafford shortly after the sack of David Moyes.
However, he has been Louis van Gaal’s assistant for close to two seasons and the ever vocal Dutchman revealed that he would ask Giggs if he was interested in taking the Swansea job.
“First I have to speak to Ryan Giggs by himself if it’s true,” Van Gaal told reporters. “And [in that case], he’s coming to me. I never read papers and I think that it’s the truth. I’m sorry. I cannot speak about ‘if’.”
The appointment of Swansea’s next manager will give us a clue where they are heading as a football club.
