Ryan Giggs tipped to replace Francesco Guidolin at Swansea City
Guidolin facing the sack at the Liberty Stadium and Giggs could be the man to replace him
September 22nd, 2016
Francesco Guidolin admitted that “it was not a good moment for us” after Swansea lost 2-1 to Manchester City on Wednesday, with the Welsh side facing the same opposition in the Premier League on Saturday.
It should be a tougher task for the Swans this weekend considering that Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne will all return to the starting line-up, with Guidolin potentially a game or two away from the sack.
Reports on Thursday have suggested that Ryan Giggs could be waiting in the wings to take over at the Liberty Stadium, with the Manchester United legend looking for a first management role after a caretaker and then an assistant role with the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho admitted in the summer that Giggs would form no part of his management staff due to an overwhelming desire to become a number one and perhaps Swansea will look to him for inspiration.
Guidolin has had a couple of public fall-outs with his players this season and Swansea sit 15th in the Premier League table after accruing four points from five games played.
Indeed, the Italian has been well backed this week on the Premier League Sack Race market and impending games against City, Liverpool and Arsenal look fairly daunting.
