‘A solid appointment’ – 49-y/o emerges as contender to replace Potter at Swansea: Opinion

Published

on

According to reports from TEAMtalk, Coventry City boss Mark Robins is among the names being considered for the vacant managerial role at Swansea City.

The Welsh club are still on the lookout for a new manager, after Graham Potter left for Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion last week.

And as well as Cameron Toshack, Tony Pulis and Chris Coleman, Sky Blues boss Robins is reportedly on the club’s radar.

The 49-year-old has done an excellent job at the helm of the Midlands club given the tough off-field problems at the Ricoh Arena, guiding them to promotion from League Two last term.

After narrowly missing out on a League One play-off spot this season, the Sky Blues will be looking to dust themselves and go again for next season, with their manager now being head-hunted.

Here, we discuss whether Robins would be a good appointment for the Swans…

George Harbey

I’m not really sure about this – I don’t think Robins would be a good appointment for a Championship team.

Don’t get me wrong, he has done a very good job with Coventry considering their problems off the pitch, but there are better options out there in my view.

I don’t think he would leave either, having already signed a number of players ahead of next season.”

Toby Wilding

This could be a good appointment.

Robins has plenty of experience across the Football League, and he has worked absolute wonders at Coventry recently, given the off field distractions he has had to deal with.

With Swansea facing a similar situation, he could arguably be a decent fit at The Liberty Stadium, if they can pride him away from Coventry.”

Ben Lang

I can see why Swansea are interested in him, and it wouldn’t be a bad appointment.

Robins has done a solid job under difficult circumstances at Coventry, and Swansea need someone who can deliver results during an uncertain time off the field.

It would not be a move that particularly inspires supporters, but I can see it being a solid appointment.”
