Ronald Koeman: Former Netherlands great is interested in managing Swansea City
Koeman's agent has already contacted the club
Thursday 13 March 2014
Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman is interested in taking charge of Swansea City, according to the Dutchman's agent, Guido Albers.
Koeman, the former Netherlands and Barcelona defender, had previously announced that he would leave the Eredivisie club at the end of the season.
Garry Monk was appointed Swansea's interim player-manager in February following the departure of Michael Laudrup, but Albers claims he has contacted the club on behalf of Koeman.
"One of his [Koeman] wishes is to work in the Premier League," Albers said of Koeman, who helped Feyenoord to second place in the Dutch top flight in 2011/12.
"Swansea's a fantastic club and a club with a lot of potential on the pitch.
"He's able to get success for the club. If you see all those fantastic players at Swansea perhaps he can find a touch in which he can take Swansea to a higher level."
Albers has warned that Koeman is in demand after he announced he would be leaving.
"If they [Swansea] are really interested come back to me," the agent said.
"But I can't call them everyday. Since the time he announced he is leaving Feyenoord already 25 agents have called me."
