Swansea interested in appointing Avram Grant as the club’s new manager [Best Tweets]

Yes you read right.

Swansea City’s task of appointing a new manager after the sacking of Gary Monk has taken a rather bizarre twist today, with the rumours that the Swans hierarchy are interested in talking to former Chelsea and West Ham boss Avram Grant about the vacant managerial position at the Liberty Stadium, according to Sky Sports.

The Israeli boss hasn’t managed in the Premier League for five years after he was sacked by West Ham, during a season which saw the Hammers get relegated to the Championship.

When the news of Gary Monk’s departure broke, there were many names instantly linked to the post, including former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers, and ex Man United boss David Moyes.

The apparent interest in Avram Grant has come out of the blue, and whilst the Israeli has had some limited success in English football, after being a penalty kick away from winning the Champions League in 2008, his appointment at Swansea would be a strange one.
