Report: Swansea are not giving up on trying to poach key Tottenham man

Despite Tottenham Hotspur knocking back an initial approach from Swansea for Chris Davies, the Championship club are continuing to pursue the Spurs assistant manager for their vacant managerial role.

Tottenham hired Chris Davies in the summer to assist new manager Ange Postecoglou, and the young coach was quick to impress the playing squad upon his arrival (Alasdair Gold).

The 38-year-old has already put together an impressive CV during his time with clubs such as Liverpool, Celtic, and Leicester City, working with Brendan Rodgers on each occasion.

Naturally, an esteemed coach is going to attract attention, and Davies has recently been touted for the Swansea job after the Championship side sacked their manager, Michael Duff. Tottenham have thus far rejected any approach from Swansea for their assistant manager (Guardian).

In a press conference on Friday, Postecoglou discussed the matter and insisted that, while the two of them were busy focusing on the weekend’s game against Newcastle, the final decision on Davies’ future would be down to Davies himself (Football.London).

Swansea still chasing Chris Davies

The latest report from The Independent suggests that, despite Tottenham’s rebuff, Swansea are still not giving up in their pursuit of Davies, and still hope they can get their man.

In the report, it claims Swansea “have not given up hope of hiring” Davies. Indeed, the man himself is “yet to make a decision” either way.

Discussing the situation further Postecoglou added that he was “relaxed” about the speculation, and suggested that he would be “proud” to see Davies take a big job if that were to come to fruition.

Spurs Web Opinion

I think if Davies had been here for a year or two, he would go for the job, but having only just really started this project, I reckon he will commit and stick by Postecoglou. The Swansea job is a decent opportunity, but it’s not the most stable position to jump into.
