Swansea City caretaker manager Alan Curtis remains in charge for West Ham fixture
18th December 2015
Caretaker-manager Alan Curtis will remain in charge of the Swans for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with West Ham at the Liberty Stadium (4pm).
Curtis, who has a 40-year association with the club in a playing and coaching capacity, will lead the team alongside coaches David Adams and Tony Roberts while Chairman Huw Jenkins continues his search for a new permanent manager.
"We felt something had to change with immediate effect,'' explained Huw. "We did so comfortable in the knowledge that the quality of the staff remaining could carry on the work professionally and in the Swansea City way.
"We have been working tirelessly and diligently since then to fill the managerial void, but the important thing is that we find the right person to complement our set-up.
"We would all like the appointment to happen sooner rather than later, but we will not rush into anything. It is more important that we find the right one - and if it takes us a little longer than expected then I'm sure it will be to the long-term benefit of this football club.''
