Swansea City sizing up Potter replacement with Coventry City man on radar

Published

Coventry City boss Mark Robins is in contention to become the new manager of Sky Bet Championship side Swansea City, according to reports from TEAMtalk.

The Swans are on the lookout for a new manager having seen Graham Potter leave for Brighton and Hove Albion last week, with the club looking to improve on their 10th placed finish next season.

And, along with Tony Pulis, Chris Coleman and Cameron Toshack, Coventry boss Mark Robins is reportedly on the club’s radar, given the job he has done at the Ricoh Arena over the last two years.

The 49-year-old took over at the Ricoh in the 2017/18 campaign and led his side to League Two play-off success, defeating Exeter City by three goals to one at Wembley.

This season, the Sky Blues finished in a respectable 8th spot, with the former Scunthorpe manager completing three signings ahead of the new season already.

Swansea will be looking to make a swift appointment, as they begin plans for next season in the Championship.

The Verdict

I don’t think that this is an appointment that Swansea should look to be making in my honest opinion.

I don’t think that Robins is ready for a job in the Championship, nor can I see him leaving having already started to make preparations for next season already.

He has a very close affinity with the club and fans alike, and I just don’t think that he will leave his post at the Ricoh Arena to become the new manager of Swansea.
