Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is set to make a comeback to the Premier League foray as Garry Monk is said to bid adieu to the Liberty stadium.
Swansea currently stand at No 15 position in the league, with only a point shy of a certain relegation. Having won just one game out of their last 11 outings, the management has nothing left to do but part ways with the man who took them to new heights. Garry Monk took charge of the club after Michael Laudrup and led the club to their best ever Premier League finish of No 8. But the fairytale seems to have reached a distressing end and club chairman wants former club manager to pick up the clubs reigns yet again.
Brendan Rodgers’s sacking was a big media drama that saw a certain ‘Normal One’ take charge at Anfield and since then Rodgers had supposedly taken a break from management. But interests from a club where he is revered might lure the ex Liverpool boss out of his slumber. Though the management has been behind Monk, the defeat against Leicester turned out to be the final test of their patience and the fact that the club might lose on the money from television rights if relegated further prompted the bosses to pull the plug.
Though Brendan Rodgers appears to the most favourable choice, the club is also said to be in talks with Glasgow rangers manager Mark Warburton. But Warburton’s desire to continue his practice in Scotland makes a good case for Rodgers. David Moyes also makes the list of the contenders and could also be a viable option.
Monk had signed an extension in July on account of his exploits with the club and thus is set to receive a pay-off of 3 million pounds when he says his goodbye to the club. How fast things can rise and fall. It was only yesterday that Monk was a contender to take up the England job and now he faces expulsion from his Club!
