Premier League strugglers lining up Brendan Rodgers for shock return to management

Swansea City are understood to be considering former boss Brendan Rodgers as they lose faith in Garry Monk.

Rodgers was only dismissed as Liverpool manager in October—and replaced by Jurgen Klopp—but could be in line to make a swift return to the Premier League.

The Express report that, with Monk’s position at the Liberty Stadium understood to be precarious, the Swans are considering an approach for their former manager.

Swansea started the season strongly, but have had an unbelievable decline in recent months, prompting questions of Monk, who was—until recently—considered as one of the brightest young managers in the British game.

Monk rescued the club from relegation following the exit of Michael Laudrup in February 2014, and built on his early success by guiding the Welsh side to eighth last term—their best-ever EPL finish..

However, the Liberty Stadium outfit have won only one of their last 11 Premier League matches, and hover just one point above the relegation zone.

The tabloid note that the manner of Swansea’s dismal 3-0 destruction at the hands of Leicester City at the weekend may be the final nail in Monk’s coffin, with Rodgers—the man who guided the Swans back to the top flight in 2012—recognised as a sound proposition to steer clear of relegation.
