Swansea City have confirmed Carlos Carvalhal will not be staying on as their manager after the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
There was an initial upturn in fortunes, with the Swans winning five of their first nine games under the Portuguese tactician.
But the Welsh club failed to win any of their final nine matches and were consigned to the Championship on the final day of the campaign.
Swans chairman Huw Jenkins said: “We’d like to put on record our thanks to Carlos for his enthusiasm, hard work and commitment since arriving at the club in December.
“Naturally, we are all disappointed with the club’s relegation from the Premier League, and following discussions with Carlos, we felt it was in the best interests of both parties that we move in a new direction.
“We will now be looking to appoint a new manager in readiness for the 2018-19 season.
“While there are already rumours linking us with several managers, it is vital that we identify the right person to take this team forward.”
Swansea have confirmed that first-team coaches Joao Mario and Bruno Lage have also left the Liberty Stadium, along with match analysts Jhony Conceicao and Paulo Sampaio.
