Former Italian national coach making good progress with Crociati.
Swansea City are reportedly planning a move to appoint Parma coach Roberto Donadoni as their next coach as the search continues for a full-time replacement for Michael Laudrup.
According to Teleducato.it, Donadoni is on their list of potential candidates, as they look to appoint a manager that can match their long-term ambition, as reported by Football Italia.
The Welsh club made the surprising move to part company with Laudrup earlier this month, with the Swans currently in 10th place in the Premier League but just four points above the relegation zone.
Garry Monk and Alan Curtis are currently in temporary charge of the team who will face Napoli in the Europa League next week, but it is understood that Donadoni could be targeted in the near future.
Speculation comes after a week in which the former AC Milan midfielder was left disenchanted and confused by the reaction of the club’s fans despite their steady progress under his stewardship, with claims that he could consider leaving at the end of the season.
The 50-year-old has built up a wealth of experience at coaching level, with spells at Lecce, Livorno, Genoa, Napoli, Cagliari and Parma, while also guiding the Azzurri to a Euro 2008 quarter-final during his two year tenure in charge of the national team.
It is unclear at this stage as to where Donadoni lies in terms of priority for the Swansea management, but the Italian appears to have caught their attention if reports are to be believed.
Parma are currently in eighth place in Serie A and just three points adrift of a place in the Europa League with sixth spot also securing qualification as a result of Napoli facing Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia final.
However, with a section of the Tardini booing after their 0-0 draw with Catania last Sunday, Donadoni was left baffled and reportedly considering his future.
