BBC Sport have this afternoon confirmed the news that Swansea City will not be offering Carlos Carvalhal a new contract to stay on as head coach.
Carvalhal got off to a great start with wins against Watford, Liverpool and Arsenal, but form suddenly dipped, with no wins in 9 meaning his final 11 game run was a worse record than that of former boss Bob Bradley.
It’s a decision that will be welcomed by the majority of Swans fans, who voted highly in favour of not offering him a new contract in our Twitter poll:
So then, how many of us want to keep Carvalhal for next season?

Earlier in his reign when good results had got us out of the bottom three, reports suggested that informal talks had begun over a new three-year deal, but the Swans had later changed their minds about keeping him after he failed to keep Swansea City in the Premier League following an awful run of form.
Carvalhal was spotted on Thursday leaving the city, adding to the speculation that his departure would soon be confirmed:
