Swansea are looking to replace manager with ex-Liverpool boss

Swansea are considering bringing back ex-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to replace Garry Monk as the club’s new manager, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Swans have struggled so far in the current campaign, with their latest 3-0 loss to Leicester City seeing them just one point away from the relegation zone.

And Monk is under intense pressure to turn their form around, or face the axe from club chairman Huw Jenkins before the turn of the New Year.

The 36-year-old is now set to hold talks with Jenkins at the Fairwood training ground to discuss his potential exit after 22 months with the Welsh side, with Rodgers in line to take over the role.

Monk was brought in to replace Michael Laudrup back in February 2014, helping the club to safety and then leading Swansea to their best ever Premier League finish in 8th last term.

Albeit starting this season off well with three wins in their first four games, the Swans have only won once in their last 11 since then.
