Swansea To Part Company With Carlos Carvalhal At End Of Season

  • Hughes: Hotel cancellation gaffe inspired us

A home loss to Southampton, coupled with Huddersfield's draw at Chelsea, means Swansea are nearly certain to be relegated from the Premier League.

Swansea host relegated Stoke City, while Southampton are home to champions Manchester City.

Instead, the Portuguese with a penchant for dainty pastries from his homeland, and a generous spirit, will serve up only regrets that he was unable to extend the Welsh club's stay in the Premier League into an eighth season.

Britton was signed permanently that summer following contributions towards his wages by fans in a Swansea Supporters Trust initiative labelled "The Battle for Britton".

Southampton all but saved their Premiership status in South Wales earlier this week, despite perceived problems with their Swansea Marriott Hotel.

Speaking to The Ref Show, the former Owls midfielder said of Carvalhal, who is now expected to be relieved of his duties after Sunday's season finale against Stoke: "He's had a tremendous start".

"There's some big questions: the owners need to come out and answer some questions as well".

The report even stressed that Gabiadini wants to be the key player at a club next season.


The Trust, which owns a 20% stake in the club and has a director on the club's board, has reiterated its stance of no confidence in chairman Jenkins and insists he should stand down.

While Britton has agreed to stay on as a club ambassador, another Swansea stalwart, Angel Rangel, is set to depart.

He told the club's official website: "I have decided that this year will be my last as a Swans player".

He therefore replaced sacked Paul Clement who was shown the exit doors after poor performances this season in the Premier League.

He made an impact upon his arrival as he guided them out of the bottom three after wins against Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham.

Asked if he would welcome Southampton moving quickly to secure a new long-term boss, Hughes replied: "I think it's important for the club that they do that".

There are two winnable games left for Swansea and with both at the Liberty, you'd expect the Jack Army to help seal Premier League football for another season.
