Club statement | Mark Allen leaves role as sporting director

29th April

Swansea City can confirm that Mark Allen has left his role as sporting director to pursue other opportunities.

Mark Allen said: “Having spent the last 15 months or so aligning the football methodology and operations across the club from academy to first team, and establishing a strong foundation on which to build, I feel it is the appropriate time in the project to pass the baton on.

“I have extremely enjoyed my time at the club and have had the privilege to work alongside some excellent football staff. I wish Russell Martin and the players the best of luck moving forward and nothing would give me greater pleasure than seeing Swansea City back in the Premier League for the loyal and magnificent fan base, and I wish the club every success in this pursuit.”

Swansea City chief executive Julian Winter commented: “We have good foundations in place as we strive to press ahead with our ongoing football strategy.

“The club looks ahead to an important period with the summer transfer window fast approaching and thanks Mark for his contribution and wishes him well for the future.

“A recruitment process is now underway and the club will provide an update in due course.”
