Van Gaal In Running For Swansea Job

Van Gaal In Running For Swansea Job

His reputation in the game ensures the Swansea players will respect his authority (meaning an initial bump in results is likely), while his tactics are perfectly aligned with the club's mantra.

Clement saved the club from relegation last season but said yesterday: "In very challenging circumstances I was unable to replicate the positive results".

Once again Swansea City need a new manager. If a big English club comes for me, I would do it.

A third strand of the interim team is Gary Richards, who has worked alongside the highly rated Toshack, 47, with Swansea's impressive Under 23 side.

Swansea are trying to persuade Van Gaal to take the reins, according to John Cross in the Mirror, and it isn't hard to see why.

Welshman Tony Pulis, Slavin Bilic and Ronald Koeman are also being linked with the post.

Swansea appointed Clement in January with the club in the relegation zone after the sacking of Bob Bradley and he won the Premier League Manager of the Month award at the first time of asking. Before, it was unheard of at Swansea.

"The quartet took training this morning and Britton will face the media at 1pm this afternoon live on this website. What we have to do now is change things around".

"Speaking to the chairman (Huw Jenkins), it was a case of we'll go day by day", Britton said.

Caretaker boss Leon Britton has stressed he is not looking to become Paul Clement's full-time successor at Swansea. And after recent events who would trust in them to do that? I am sure there are going to be lot of people who will want to take this job as well.

But Britton is hoping any discontent among fans will be muted and support for the team will be clear on Saturday.

The Welsh outfit says it will give a further update on replacement coaching staff "within the next 24 hours". "It's a massive game for us on Saturday".

Striker Wilfried Bony is out of the next two matches against Palace and Liverpool and a doubt for the team's trip to Watford on December 30 with a hamstring injury.
