Bookmakers make Ryan Giggs favourite for Swansea job

Thomas Giles

Despite the fact that Francesco Guidolin is still in charge of Premier League club Swansea, bookmakers have started to take bets on the next head coach of the Swans. The main contender for the job according to Betfair is former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs.


Odds on the Manchester United legend leading the Swans are as low as 11/25. Second in the list of contenders to be the next head coach of the Welsh side is Wales national team coach Chris Coleman, with the odds on him being appointed standing at 11/2. In third place is another Manchester United player, Steve Bruce at 10/1.

However, the British media say that the American owners of the club would be happy to have former US national team coach Bob Bradley in the role as they believe that Giggs currently lacks the experience to take on the role.

Bookmaker Ratings have reported that the current Swans manager Francesco Guidolin is the favourite to be next coach to be sacked by a Premier League club. According to British media reports, if Swansea lose against Liverpool in their next match on October 1st then that will be the final straw for the Italian.
