Wednesday night has seen Paul Clement become the sixth Premier League manager to lose their job this season.
Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins claiming ‘we couldn’t leave it any longer’.
The Swans play their 19th Premier League match of the season, a real relegation six pointer at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
No doubt they will be hoping for another ‘bounce’, having brought in Paul Clement 11 months ago and he took them from the relegation zone to 15th by the end of the season.
Interesting to see who they bring in, with Pardew, Allardyce and Moyes having already picked up jobs, no doubt Steve McClaren will be wondering…
The six sackings so far:
11 September – Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace)
17 October – Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City)
23 October – Ronald Koeman (Everton)
6 November – Slaven Bilic (West Ham)
20 November – Tony Pulis (West Brom)
20 December – Paul Clement (Swansea City)
This makes it four of the bottom seven clubs have now changed bossed, with Bournemouth, Stoke and Newcastle the exceptions.
Newcastle host Swansea on Saturday 13 January at St James Park.
Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins:
“We felt we couldn’t leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give the best chance of an uplift.
“We had three different manager last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around.
“Paul has been at the club for 12 months and what he achieved in the second half of last season to keep us in the top flight was a tremendous feat.
“For that, and his effort and commitment this season, it goes without saying that the club thanks him for his work, together with Nigel and Karl.”
