Speaking to Voetbal International, Swansea City director John van Zweden has stated that agent of Feyenoord head coach Ronald Koeman has approached him regarding the vacant Swansea City manager job.
Guido Albers approached fellow Dutchman Van Zweden, born in Den Haag, in interest of Koeman to become the new Swans manager from next season. Current Feyenoord coach Koeman, 50, has already declared that he will not renew his contract with the Rotterdam club which ends this summer.
Van Zweden also stated that he has passed the details onto Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins: “I have passed on the telephone number of Koeman’s agent to Huw Jenkins but whether or not there has been any contact yet, I really do not know. I know that the club is very pleased with Garry Monk at this moment in time.”.
Koeman was one of the names linked with the Swans job in the immediate aftermath of Michael Laudrup’s dismissal last month. However, when questioned by the Dutch press that week, the coach stated that he had not had any talks with Swansea City.
Meanwhile, the bookies favourite still remains club legend Garry Monk to land the manager’s role on a full-time basis after making a promising start to his managerial career.
Koeman’s future is in the air and a move to the Premier League would suit the 50-year-old Dutchman, though a move to Greece or the Bundesliga in Germany has also been mooted.
