Brighton moved quickly to appoint former Swansea City boss Graham Potter and now the South Wales club are looking for a new manager, but who are the main contenders and what are the latest odds in the next Swansea manager market?
One of the names heavily linked to the vacant Swansea managerial position is their former boss Garry Monk, who is the current manager of fellow Championship side Birmingham City, however he isn’t the favourite for the job though after a big punt on somebody who is already familiar with the club. See the top 4 in the next Swansea manager odds below:
We’ve took an in-depth look at the top four candidates in the betting but of some of the bigger prices there are a few familiar names, including Sam Allardyce (20/1), David Moyes (25/1), former Swansea player Angel Ranger (25/1), Wales manager Ryan Giggs (14/1) and former Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal (22/1).
The former Sunderland, Wales and Fulham manager was recently sacked by Chinese side Hebei China Fortune following a poor start to the season. After a successful spell in charge of Wales, Coleman went to Sunderland but that job was not a success and he was released from his contract after the club were relegated to League One. Coleman started his playing career at Swansea City in 1987 and went on to make 160 appearances for the Swans.
The former Swansea player took the reigns back in 2017 on a temporary basis, but back then he did rule out taking the Swansea managers job on full-time. However, he is still being linked with the job and is currently a 17/2 shot with Paddy Power. There has been no shortlist drawn up by the Swansea board so it’d be interesting to see if they speak to a former player with a close association with the club.
The second favourite in the latest betting odds is Birmingham manager Garry Monk. He has a lot of experience managing in the Championship including with Leeds and Middlesbrough. He played 226 times for Swansea in a 10 year spell and managed them between April 2014 and December 2015. Swansea would need to prize him away from his current employers and there is no guarantee Monk would return to the Liberty Stadium
The surprise favourite to be the next Swansea manager is their current under-23 boss Cameron Toshack. He has won a lot of fans amongst the Swansea backroom staff and has helped youngsters such as Ollie McBurnie break into the Swansea first team. He was a big price when this market opened up but a series of bets have forced the bookies to move Toshack into favourite for the Swansea manager position.
