There is never a dull moment this season when it comes to Premier League managers and their futures.

First it was Brendan Rodgers, who was replaced by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool in October. In December Jose Mourinho was dismissed by Chelsea and now Manchester City have already appointed Pep Guardiola as their new boss, replacing Manuel Pellegrini in the summer.

Now, according to the Sunday Express, the first sacked manager of the 2015/16 campaign, Brendan Rodgers, is set for a return to top flight management in the summer.

Swansea City was where Rodgers made a name for himself and managing the Welsh club acted as a springboard for his career, as Liverpool came calling back in 2012. After a difficult season this term under Francesco Guidolin, it appears that former manager Rodgers is being lined up for a return to the club with a four-year contract reportedly being prepared.

Swansea enjoyed a triumphant return to top flight football under Rodgers back in 2011 and became the first Welsh side ever to play in the Premier League, since it’s inception in 1992.

When Rodgers left for Liverpool in 2012, he did so while riding the crest of a wave. Fans and club executives were sorry to see the manager go so these reports of a return in the summer will be greeted with huge positivity by the club and supporters alike.
