Swansea unveil Sousa as new manager

Swansea City have unveiled Paulo Sousa as new manager.

Sousa, 38, who left QPR in controversial circumstances back in April after just five months in charge, finally put pen to paper on Tuesday having spoken to his family after verbally accepting a three-year deal last Thursday.

The former Portugal midfielder and assistant manager replaces Roberto Martinez after he left the Liberty Stadium to take charge of Barclays Premier League side Wigan.

Sousa becomes Swansea's 12th manager in the last 14 years and will bring a brand new backroom team to south Wales after Martinez took his managerial staff to the JJB Stadium with him.
