Tottenham Hotspur reject Swansea City approach for Chris Davies

Tottenham Hotspur have swiftly rebuffed an approach from Swansea City for their assistant manager, Chris Davies, as the Welsh club searches for a new manager following Michael Duff’s recent sacking.

Chris Davies joined Spurs’ coaching staff in the summer, emerged as a leading candidate for the managerial position at Swansea.

Davies, 38, has a deep connection with Swansea, having previously been on the coaching staff under Brendan Rodgers from 2010 to 2012. His association with Rodgers extends beyond Swansea, as he followed the managerial maestro to Liverpool and later to Celtic and Leicester City, serving as his trusted assistant. This journey has seen Davies play a significant role in Rodgers’ coaching setups.

His coaching career has been on a consistent upward trajectory, and his experience with top-flight clubs adds substantial weight to his credentials.

Moreover, we are in a transitional phase at the moment, and it would be important to stick to the staff we have so that there is some amount of consistency in the way things are going at the club.
