CHESTER CITY captain Roberto Martinez was interviewed yesterday for the vacant managerial position with Coca-Cola League One club Swansea City.
The position became vacant after Kenny Jackett resigned last week.
Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan, said last night, said: “We have been informed by Swansea, Roberto was interviewed for their managerial post and we sincerely wish him well in whatever he wishes for himself.
“I hope the situation surrounding Roberto to be sorted out quickly.
“I hope Swansea will inform us quickly whether or not they wish to take their interest further, because this state of limbo is having an unsettling effect on Chester and it creates problems for Mark Wright and his preparations for our coming games.”
Meanwhile, Chester travel to Wiltshire today to prepare for tomorrow’s match against promotion-chasing Swindon.
City could see defender Ashley Westwood returning to the squad. He has recovered from his hamstring injury, and may be included.
One player who is definitely available is midfielder Jamie Hand, who has completed his two-match suspension, that ruled him out of the games against Wrexham and Bury.
City are currently unbeaten in their last six away games, winning four and drawing two matches on the road.
City’s reserve defender Robert Marsh-Evans is to enter hospital next week for surgery on his troublesome foot injury. The youngster suffered a broken metatarsal in a pre-season friendly and the injury unfortunately hasn’t set properly, now necessitating an operation.
