Swansea Rule Out Naming Manchester United Legend As Their New Manager (See Reasons)

Swansea City have ruled out Ryan Giggs as a possible successor to Bob Bradley.
Giggs, 43, was the favourite for the job following Bradley’s exit on Tuesday but the club are looking elsewhere.
BBC Sport understands Wales boss Chris Coleman remains a contender despite his wife tweeting on Thursday that the couple intend to move abroad once his contract expires in 2018.
Bayern Munich assistant Paul Clement is also understood to be in contention, as well as ex-Birmingham boss Gary Rowett.

Like Giggs, Clement was interviewed for the job in the autumn before Bradley replaced Francesco Guidolin.
Former Derby County manager Clement is thought to have impressed the Swansea hierarchy.
The Swans, 19th in the Premier League, have denied reports they have approached the Football Association of Wales about Coleman.
However, it is understood discussions about filling the vacant manager’s position are beginning, with the club hopeful of having Bradley’s replacement in place prior to the trip to Crystal Palace on 3 January.
Alan Curtis, who is taking temporary charge of the team, believes the club’s next manager should be British and have experience of the Premier League.
“It has to be the right man. Ideally they would be British and know the Premier League,” Curtis said.
“[The owners] have to be satisfied he fills all the criteria for getting us out of the trouble we find ourselves in.”
