Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Former captain Garry Monk has been place in charge for the 'foreseeable future' but it is understood that whilst Swansea's hierarchy are willing to give the new set-up a chance, they are actively looking at alternatives.

There is no sign or willingness for Swansea to move away from their style of play - first instigated by Roberto Martinez and continued by Paulo Sousa, Brendan Rodgers and Laudrup - under a new boss.

With that in mind Garcia and Enrique, who are impressing in their current roles with Brighton and Celta Vigo respectively, are understood to be on their radar.

Glenn Hoddle has also been linked, and we understand that Martinez's number two at Everton, Graeme Jones - who has links with Swansea too from his time in South Wales - would also come under consideration.

French reports also claim that former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly is another who could emerge as a contender for the role.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
