3 Graham Potter replacements Swansea must consider if he leaves for Celtic

Published

After a second-half of the season that has been dominated with speculation linking key players with a move away from the club, Swansea City may well be set to lose their manager now.

Reports from The Sun (1404, page 61) claim that Scottish champions Celtic are keen to speak to Graham Potter regarding the managerial role at Celtic Park, after an impressive tenure at the Liberty Stadium thus far.

The Glasgow side are currently managed by Neil Lennon, who has won five out of seven games in charge of the SPFL side since being appointed as interim manager, following Brendan Rodgers’ departure to Leicester City.

But the club are reportedly keen on talking to alternatives, with Potter believed to be on the club’s radar. The 43-year old has took his Swansea side to 13th spot in the Sky Bet Championship table this season, working on a limited budget.

The former Ostersunds manager hugely impressed over in Sweden, after his side did battle with Premier League side Arsenal in the Europa League last term, and will still be looking to prove himself in England.

But there’s no getting away from the fact that Celtic are a massive, successful club, and should he leave for Celtic, we take a look at three replacements that the Welsh club should consider…

Darren Moore

Moore will be eager to get back into management after being very harshly sacked by West Brom in Febuary.

The 44-year old was awarded the job at the Hawthorns on a permanent basis after losing just one out of six games in the Premier League last term, as the Baggies nearly avoided the drop.

Moore then led his side to within touching distance of the automatic promotion places this season, but was sacked after losing ground on the top two.

He is a fantastic coach who gets the best out of young players, and would be a perfect fit at the Liberty Stadium.

Mark Warburton

Warburton is another name that would be a shrewd appointment for the Swans.

The former Rangers manager’s last stint in management came with Nottingham Forest, where he was relieved of his duties after winning 15 out of 37 games in charge of the Reds.

Before that though, the 56-year old worked wonders at Brentford, guiding the Bees to promotion from League One and taking them into the Championship play-offs the following year, all whilst working on a tight budget.

He is another manager who believes in youth, and would get the best out of the likes of Dan James and Connor Roberts.

David Wagner

It would be a massive coup if Swansea were to land Wagner, after doing an incredible job at Huddersfield Town.

The German manager guided the Terriers to promotion to the Premier League in 2016/17, and managed to steer them away from the drop the following year.

Ultimately, the Yorkshire club ran out of steam this time around and Wagner was sacked in January, but nobody can forget what a fantastic job he did at the club.

He is a fantastic coach and would be an excellent choice for Swansea.
