Ryan Giggs installed as favourite for Swansea managerial job

Ryan Giggs has been installed as the bookmakers' favourite to replace Bob Bradley as Swansea City manager following the American's departure from the club.

The Swans confirmed on Tuesday that Bradley has left the club after just three months in charge, with the club deciding to look elsewhere due to their poor Premier League position.

"Unfortunately things haven't worked out as planned and we felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League season remaining," chairman Huw Jenkins said.

"With the club going through such a tough time, we have to try and find the answers to get ourselves out of trouble."

Giggs is the 4/6 favourite to take the vacant position, ahead of Gary Rowett, Chris Coleman and Alan Pardew.

The former Manchester United winger was linked to the job before Bradley took the job, and revealed that he was not appointed at the time due to 'mixed messages.'

“There I was enjoying my year out, and I get the call off Swansea," the former Wales international told ITV.

"I met with them a couple of times but in the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club.

“I just felt their ambitions did not really match mine, so it didn’t quite work out.”

Giggs was player-manager at Old Trafford following David Moyes' sacking, but has not yet held a full-time managerial position.
