Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has said that it is extremely likely that manager Brendan Rodgers will be tempted by an opportunity to manage a big Premier league club at the end of this season.
Brendan Rodgers has emerged as one of the contenders for the Manager of the Year trophy after quite an impressive season with newly promoted Swansea city. Many were expecting Swansea to struggle in the first season in the top flight after many years, but they have defied expectation and have the opportunity to get past Liverpool in the Premier league table.
Over the season, Swansea have overseen the victories over Arsenal and Manchester City, which will remain within the minds of every Swansea supporter for a long time.
Manager Brendan Rodgers has been a key component in the Swansea success this season, but Huw Jenkins has admitted that he does not expect his manager to stay with them for a long due to interest from other clubs. Chelsea were the most recent club to be credited with an interest in him, while Tottenham are also looking at the possibility of replacing Harry Redknapp with Brendan Rodgers should be the former Portsmouth manager leave for the England job.
“It’s what happens when you do well – players get recognition, managers get recognition. Speculation is part of football. I can’t predict the future but we will do all we can to keep our manager and players at Swansea. If there is an approach then I will sit down with Brendan and explain as well as I can why he should stay. As a dream, we can take the club further,” Jenkins told The Daily Mail. Swansea are currently 11th in the Premier league table, and will be hosting Newcastle United this weekend. Newcastle are chasing a Champions League spot.
