As we enter January the hunt for a successor to Garry Monk at Swansea City sees no signs of a conclusion will this mean that Alan Curtis ends up staying in the helm due to Huw Jenkins not being able to find a replacement.
It seems as if the Marcelo Bielsa trail has gone cold as of late and options for a new man at The Liberty Stadium seem to be thin on the ground as of late, will Huw Jenkins feel that it may be easier to leave his club in the safe hands of Alan Curtis.
Since Curtis has been in charge Swansea’s performances certainly have been better than Garry Monk’s last day and has seen a squad revitalised but they still have only won once in the five matches under his stewardship.
With it being January there is also the added question of whether Alan Curtis will be trusted with buying players this month or will he only be allowed to work with the players he already has. This is a gamble the Chairman us going to have to weigh up.
If he is only going to be Manager until the end of the season then it seems unlikely that he’ll be allowed to buy players for somebody else but at the same time failure to get new faces in could see the club struggle in the second half of the season.
There was no doubt that Swansea were below par towards the end of Garry Monk’s reign and a change was probably needed and although Alan Curtis is Swansea through and through will the decision to change Managers and not finding a permanent replacement soon after prove a costly decision come May?
