Swansea City are considering appointing under-23 boss Cameron Toshack as a replacement for Graham Potter, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
The club are looking for a new manager after Graham Potter left to join Brighton earlier this week and the report states that Toshack is under consideration for the role, having done well with the Swans’ under-23 side.
Potter was able to guide Swansea to a top-half finish in the Championship this season and helped the team reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, but left to succeed Chris Hughton at the Amex Stadium.
So, would Toshack be a good appointment for Swansea? We discuss…
“This may not be a bad appointment for Swansea.
“Having managed the club’s under-23 side for some time, Toshack will already know the club inside out, not to mention a number of the first-team squad who have come through the academy.
“Knowing the club so well means that Toshack would have a more clearer idea of what is needed in the squad than someone coming in from the outside would have, and that may save valuable time with the summer transfer window already well underway.”
“It was always going to be difficult for Swansea to replace Potter, but Toshack could be a good appointment for them.
“He has done a good job managing their under-23 side and will have already managed quite a few of the young players in the first-team squad.
“He is somebody who already knows the club well, so he may be able to make an impact quickly, although he has no experience of managing in the Championship, so his appointment would have to be considered a risk for the Swans.”
“It could be worth a go.
“Swansea are looking set to lose a number of key players and whether they can replace them is a big question at the moment.
“If they need to promote youth, who better than Toshack who will know the players already?”
