Giggs out of the running for Swansea job as Curtis calls for someone who can give “immediate effect”

Date Posted,December 29, 2016

Ryan Giggs is out of the running to be Swansea boss.

The former Manchester United and Wales star had been touted as a potential replacement for Bob Bradley, who was sacked on Tuesday.

But Mirror Sport understands that Swansea, who interviewed Giggs for the role before appointing the American, are now looking elsewhere.

Gary Rowett – sacked by Birmingham this month – and Bayern Munich assistant Paul Clement are in the running. Clement was formerly in charge at Derby.

Wales boss Chris Coleman, whose wife Charlotte tweeted yesterday suggesting that he would not be leaving his current job, is still in the club’s sights.

Swansea hope to appoint by early next week and caretaker boss Alan Curtis says the next manager must make an immediate impact.

The Swans have axed three managers in the last 12 months. They are four points from safety after former USA chief Bradley won just two of his 11 games in charge.

Swans legend Curtis, who worked under Bradley as a coach, said: “We need somebody who can get us out of trouble – he needs to have an immediate effect.

“You want someone with charisma who can command respect straight away. He needs to be the right man with experience in the Premier League.”
