Interim Swansea boss may stay until the summer

Swansea CityThe Swansea City fans playing darts in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports regarding their management situation.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the club could be set to leave Alan Curtis in charge of the club until the summer.

Curtis has steadied the ship at the club since taking over from Garry Monk, and with interest in reported top targets Marcelo Bielsa and Gustavo Poyet appearing to have cooled, chairman Huw Jenkins in considering leaving Curtis in control for the rest of the season.

It is reported that should Curtis win a couple of the next games Swansea play, that would be enough to convince Jenkins to leave him in charge until the end of the season. Speaking about his position at the club during his weekly news conference, Curtis said:

“I will carry on for as long as it takes, if it’s the weekend or a little bit further, We will do what it takes for the club to continue to show the improvement on the field and, perhaps more ­importantly, pick up points.”

“Part of the equation would be if we were to win a couple of games and the performances carry on being decent, then probably the need to appoint a new manager is not so great.

“Things can move very quickly and it may be that it is not long before someone is appointed, but there is no point rushing it. It has to be the right man.”

The Swansea fans in The Transfer Tavern, although willing to give Curtis a chance, would sooner see the club appoint a permanent manager as quickly as possible.

Swansea fans, is this a good call? Let us know in the comments below!
