Favourites for Swansea City manager

After Graham Potter left Swansea City for Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the Liberty Stadium.

WalesOnline claim the Championship side have already started the process though yet to draw up a shortlist.

Swansea City Supporters Trust said: “Looking to our club’s future, the Trust views it as absolutely critical that the club builds on the good work of the last year and brings in a manager with a similar mindset that will develop our talented youngsters and footballing style.

“We know there is significant concern among the fans that Graham’s departure could lead to other major departures from our club. We call on the owners and decision makers at our club to be open and transparent with the fans at this critical time, as well as make every effort to ensure the right person is chosen as manager and that they are given all the tools necessary to ensure we build on the progress made and have the best chance of success next season.”

Danny first grabbed the attention of the country when he and his brother took Lincoln City all the way to the FA Cup Quarter Finals in 2017, causing shocks against Ipswich, Brighton and Burnley along the way.

The Imps finished the 2016/17 season crowned champions of the National League and then in the 2017/18 season finished 7th, claiming a playoff place in their first season back in the Football League and also won the EFL Trophy at Wembley.

In the 2018/19 season Danny and Nicky Cowley’s side finished top of the League Two table and won promotion to League One.

According to The Mirror, Swansea City will speak to the Queens Park Rangers assistant manager, John Eustace, about succeeding Graham Potter this week.

In April 2016, after spending a short period of time with the club, Eustace was named manager of National League side Kidderminster, signing a one-year contract until the end of the 2016–17 season. He then left the club in May 2018 to join former manager Steve McClaren at Queens Park Rangers as assistant manager.

The 39-year-old – who used to play for Coventry City, Stoke City, Watford and Derby County – was only named as new QPR boss Mark Warburton’s number two at Loftus Road last week.
