There has been plenty of speculation as to where former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will go once he decides to return to coaching, but his next job could very well be at a club that hasn’t even decided on its future yet.
According to The Sun, Rodgers is being lined up to replace embattled Swansea City manager Garry Monk should the Swans boss be forced out. The source reported that the Swansea management will make a final decision on Monk’s future at the club this week after the team was embarrassed against Leicester City in a 3-0 loss.
The Swans have lost four of their last five and hover just one point above relegation as of writing.
Rodgers managed Liverpool from June 2012 until he was fired this past October, winning just over 51% of his matches for the Reds. Despite his record he is still considered one of the sharpest minds in English coaching and has been targeted by a litany of high-profile clubs in England and across Europe.
