Swansea return would be perfect fit opportunity for Brendan Rodgers to rebuild reputation

Brendan Rodgers would be interested in returning to Swansea City if the club make another attempt to bring him back in the summer, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

The South Wales Evening Post reports that Rodgers was Swansea’s first choice to replace Garry Monk before they appointed Italian Francesco Guidolin on a short-term contract.

It appears that the 60-year-old has a fight on his hands to secure the job beyond this season, with the South Wales Evening Post citing The Sun as claiming that “his days are numbered”.

Guidolin has won four and drawn two of his nine games in charge, alongside Swans stalwart Alan Curtis, to help the Swans move clear of relegation trouble in the Premier League.

But being absent from the last three games because of a lung infection is unlikely to help Guidolin’s cause as he aims to prove that he can be the long-term answer at the Liberty Stadium.

Rodgers being available could also persuade the Swansea board to let Guidolin go in the summer. The Northern Irishman has been out of work since being sacked by Liverpool in October.

He must be eager to get back into management after a disappointing end to his time at Anfield. He nearly led the Reds to the title in 2013-14, but arguably left the club as a bit of a laughing stock.

Going abroad to rebuild your reputation is a risk – just ask David Moyes. Rodgers would be much better off in familiar surroundings – he managed Swansea for two years before leaving for Merseyside.

Some of the players that Rodgers led to the Premier League remain at the club and would likely welcome his return, and he would have the backing of the fans that he did not always have at Liverpool.
