Frank de Boer and Slaven Bilic in contention for Swansea City job

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 21 December 2017, 17:46

It’s been nearly 24 hours since Swansea City sacked Paul Clement and the tale so far has been one soaked in rejection, in both directions. 

All the fingers pointed to Tony Pulis as the man to live up to his firefighter reputation and come in and save the struggling Swans from the drop. 

But no, the famous Sky Sports sources revealed that the ex West Brom boss, who has also been linked with former club Stoke, was not on the Welsh outfit’s radar. 

Ryan Giggs is still foraging around for a route into football management, but having previously been rejected by Swansea, he said that he wasn’t interested this time around. 

Swansea then named player-coach Leon Britton as their caretaker for the upcoming clash with Crystal Palace, but he said that he was not yet ready for the permanent position. 

Then it was the turn of Ronald Koeman who ruled himself out of contention. 

But two men who haven’t (yet) taken their names out of the frame are Frank de Boer and Slaven Bilic, both of whom were ditched earlier on in the campaign. 

Back in the early days of the season De Boer set an unwanted new record after he was given the boot after just four league games at Crystal Palace. 

A couple of months later Bilic joined him in the job centre after West Ham wielded the axe, despite continuously backing the Croatian in the weeks leading up to his departure. 

As we have hinted at the market is pretty tricky to call at this stage but one thing is for sure, there will undoubtedly be a few more twists and turns before the Swans find their man!
