Former Ipswich and QPR boss Jim Magilton has emerged as the latest person to be linked with the Swansea City manager’s job.
Reports today suggest that the club are set to approach Magilton to succeed Paulo Sousa as our new boss.
If these news stories are correct, they’re hardly unlikely to inspire Swansea City fans – especially considering how his last job at QPR ended. Magilton was suspended by the Loftus Road club, and then sacked following allegations that he head-butted a player. The Irishman denied any wrong-doings in an incident which occurred after a Monday-night fixture.
The Belfast Telegraph says today that Magilton is set to succeed Paulo Sousa for a second time. They believe that a ‘tentative approach has been made to Magilton’ – who is ‘interested’ in the job.
Incidentally, Magilton is now 10/1 with bookmakers Victor Chandler, following today’s reports. Gary Speed is the new favourite at 7/4.
