Alan Curtis: Takes Swansea to Spurs on Sunday

Swansea City are poised to confirm interim boss Alan Curtis will remain in charge until the end of the season, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Curtis stepped into the helm last month following the sacking of Garry Monk and the 61-year-old has helped oversee an upturn in results and performances.

The 61-year-old was expected to only stay in caretaker charge for a couple of games until a new man could be found to replace Monk, but Curtis has impressed the club’s hierarchy since taking charge of the first-team.

Curtis has picked up five points from the five games he has so far taken charge of, with his only defeats coming in narrow losses to Manchester City and Manchester United.

Swansea are now set to hand Curtis the chance to remain in charge until the end of the season before resuming their search for a permanent appointment in the summer.

The Welsh club are currently just two points above the relegation drop zone and Curtis will be tasked with securing Premier League survival between now and the end of the season.

Meanwhile, reports in Tuesday’s Daily Mail suggest Swansea will turn to former manager Brendan Rodgers in the summer.

Rodgers is understood to have rejected an initial approach from the Swans not long after Monk was sacked but the 42-year-old was unwilling to return to management so soon after leaving Liverpool.
