Carvalhal set to leave Swansea

Carvalhal set to leave Swansea

Champions Manchester City travel to Southampton in the final game of the Premier League season on Sunday.

The Portuguese's contract expired this month, although the deal included an option to extend it, but the club's board have made a decision to look elsewhere.

A 4-1 hammering of West Ham in March, moved the club up to 13th, three points clear of the relegation zone.

"But it is still very much in our hands and very quickly we will get this out of our system and go again".

"I know that the club have hinted that it won't be a huge summer for transfers, but I'm sure if City get word of a big-name player becoming available then they will definitely be in the mix".

But Huddersfield Town's draw with Chelsea on Wednesday night left Swansea all-but mathematically relegated.

"We have everything to play for on Sunday, everything", Lambert said.

In terms of replacing Carvalhal, Roberts thinks that Chris Coleman could be a good fit at a club the Swansea-born former Wales manager played for from 1987-1991.

Swansea will now seek a manager who can lead them in the Championship, with the aim of returning straight back to the Premier League.

By virtue of this result, their survival chance is no longer in their hands, as the league comes to an end this weekend.

The Swans are three points behind Huddersfield but have a better goal difference by two.

Not completely out of the question, but things look pretty bleak for the Jacks.

However, Roberts believes that Carvalhal has not been helped by the calibre of the squad at his disposal.

The newspaper adds that the Portuguese coach, whose team has not won for more than two months, will trigger a one-year contract extension if the Swans stay up.

Indeed, a win at Southampton would make City's league season, statistically at least, the finest-ever in the English top-flight. "Hopefully, when I finish playing, I will be a season-ticket holder at the Liberty and I will be able to watch a successful team because I am a Jack".
