Carlos Carvalhal to leave Swansea at end of season

Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal will leave the club at the end of the season, according to reports.

Carvalhal, 52, has been in charge at the Liberty Stadium since December 28, when he replaced Paul Clement, just 4 days after being sacked by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

 

Despite an upturn in results immediately following his appointment—Swansea secured consecutive home wins against Liverpool and Arsenal—the side’s form has tailed off in recent months and the Welsh club’s top flight status was all but lost on Tuesday.

 

A 1-0 defeat by Southampton means EPL survival is out Swansea’s hands heading into the final matchday of the season, and just 3 days before Swansea host Stoke it has been confirmed Carvalhal will not be continuing as manager past the end of the campaign.

 

The Portuguese is out of contract at the end of the season, and though talks had been held about extending his deal, the club have decided against renewing as they prepare for a likely campaign in the second tier.
