Premier League side Swansea City are looking to appoint Marcelo Bielsa as their next manager, according to reports from the Metro.
A lot of names have been linked with the managerial hot seat at Swansea City following the sacking of Garry Monk last week.
The likes of Brendan Rodgers, Ryan Giggs, David Moyes and Gus Poyet are just some of the names being touted to join Swansea but now according to reports from the Metro, it has been claimed that former Athletic Bilbao manager Marcelo Bielsa is the favourite to take over at the Liberty Stadium.
Bielsa departed Marseille following only one game this season and it is believed that the Argentinean is ready to make a return back into management.
Now reports claim that Swansea are considering making a move for Bielsa as the club hierarchy feel that the 60-year old’s footballing philosophy is similar to theirs.
Bielsa has vast experience managing the likes of Newell’s Old Boys, Atlas, America, Velez Sarsfield, Espanyol, the Argentina and Chile national team, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille, and one of the best managers in the world in Pep Guardiola considers the Chilean his managerial mentor.
