Swansea considering Bergkamp as new manager

Swansea City could turn to former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp as the replacement for Michael Laudrup, according to ESPN.

Swansea sacked Laudrup on Tuesday, just four days before the South Wales derby as part of management reshuffle with long-term skipper Gary Monk to take over as head coach for the foreseeable future.


Chairman Huw Jenkins recently promoted Monk to a coaching role and he will now step up to first team coach whilst the club seek a replacement.


Jenkins is thought to be an admirer of Graeme Jones, formerly assistant manager at Swansea under Roberto Martinez and now with Martinez at Everton, as well as Dennis Bergkamp, who is currently coaching at Ajax.


The 44-year-old is the assistant coach to Frank de Boer at the Dutch side, who are currently top of their league table.


The Welsh club sit just two points above the relegation zone despite being in 12th place and have won just one of their last 10 Premier League matches.


Laudrup is the first manager to have been sacked by the Swans in almost a decade following constant speculation about the 49-year-old’s future.


"It is a decision we have taken reluctantly," said Jenkins. "But it's a decision made in the best interests of Swansea City Football Club and our supporters.


"It is the first time in nearly 10 years that the club has parted with a manager in this way, but we had to remove the constant uncertainty surrounding the club and Michael's long-term future with us.”
