It’s being widely reported that this coming weekend’s game will be Carlos Carvalhal’s last in charge of Swansea after trying his darndest but ultimately failing to deliver the Welsh side from relegation.
The Swans aren’t mathematically down quite yet, but they will have to beat Stoke on the final day and hope that Southampton lose to Man City by a 10-goal swing to stay up, so… y’know.
Either way, Carvalhal’s services won’t be retained beyond then, with BBC Sport positing that the Swansea board have decided not to renew his short-term contract after a run of eight games without a win.
It’s also being claimed that Swansea interviewed a number of managerial targets before appointing Carvalhal back in December – with Aitor Karanka (now at Nottingham Forest), Graham Potter (Ostersunds) and even ex-Swans boss Michael Laudrup all contacted at one point or another to no avail.
Names in the frame to take over from the departing incumbent Chris Coleman and… well, that’s about it for the moment.
What a sorry mess that club have got themselves into.
