Craig tips Swans for more success
18th August 2015
Tommy Craig is tipping Swansea City for even more success under Garry Monk after a fine start to the season.
The Swans have collected four points from their opening two games - including a first win of the season against Newcastle at the Liberty last weekend.
And Craig - who was back in SA1 as a guest to watch two of his former clubs go head-to-head - believes that the Swans have a bright future under Garry Monk.
"The game itself went pretty much as I expected it to," he said. "I thought Swansea would control and dictate the play, but that's two really good performances from Swansea so far and it bodes well.
"They are very much a good footballing team, with a great understanding between the players, and a fantastic work ethic.
"Garry Monk has got to be congratulated for continuing the club's philosophy because that was once again on show against Newcastle."
The 64-year-old was present in the hospitality lounges for the game against Newcastle, while he was also introduced to the crowd ahead of kick-off.
"It was a fantastic day for myself," said Craig, who scored nine goals in 59 games for the Swans. "I caught up with a few old friends and met the supporters, too.
"They were always very warm and kind towards me when I was a player and that has continued to this day.
"To be amongst them again was a great feeling."
