Steve Cooper is set to leave Swansea City by mutual consent after two years in charge of the club.
— John Percy (@JPercyTelegraph) July 21, 2021
The former England youth boss took over in the summer of 2019 and took the Swans to the play-offs in his first year in charge. Another play-off place was secured in the previous campaign but it ended in heartbreak as they lost to Brentford at Wembley.
Since that defeat, there has been constant speculation surrounding the future of Cooper, who had been linked with a host of other jobs.
However, whilst he didn’t leave for the likes of Fulham or Crystal Palace, the 41-year-old will be departing the Welsh side, with John Percy confirming the news this afternoon.
21 things every Swansea City fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?
Even though he recorded back-to-back top six finishes, some fans were not impressed with the style of play under Cooper, so the reaction to his departure was mixed.
Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
The timing and handling of this whole situation is and has been dreadful from the moment the final whistle went at Wembley and plenty of questions need to be asked.
It's the right decision though. https://t.co/kYr79Hgkqg
