Ex-Wales Boss Lined Up For ‘Relegated’ Swans

Former Wales manager Chris Coleman is a front-runner for the top job at Swansea City.

Speculation has linked the man who guided the Red Dragons to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, where they were defeated by the eventual winners, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

Current Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal is leaving following Sunday’s final game on Sunday against Stoke City.

The Portuguese’s side, without a win in eight games, need to defeat the already relegated Potters and then need Southampton to lose at home to champions Manchester City to retain their Premier League status – while also needing a 10-goal swing in their favour, unlikely given the Swans’ recent goal-shy efforts.

Coleman – a former Swansea player and local boy – has already been linked with other clubs, having been let go by Sunderland last month after failing to keep the Black Cats in the Championship.

Others in the frame include ex-England boss Steve McClaren and Alan Pardew, latterly of West Bromwich Albion.
