Swansea City coaching trio Pep Clotet, James Beattie and Kristian O'Leary leave club
10th December 2015
Swansea City can confirm assistant manager Pep Clotet and first-team coaches James Beattie and Kristian O'Leary have left the club.
The trio exit the club in the wake of Garry Monk's departure from the Swans on Wednesday afternoon.
Spaniard Clotet originally joined the Swans as Academy Consultant in November 2013, and just three months later stepped up to become Monk's assistant with the first team.
Former England striker Beattie was appointed first-team coach this summer, with his prime responsibility coaching the club's forwards.
Beattie had managerial experience following a stint in charge of Accrington Stanley, while he was a former team-mate of Monk at Southampton during a playing career which included spells with hometown club Blackburn Rovers and Everton.
Stalwart O'Leary returned to the club in July 2012 following a 15-year playing career with the Swans.
Initially returning as a senior coach with responsibility for the development of the club's young professionals from the youth team to first-team, he would later become solely involved in first-team duties following Monk's appointment as manager.
The club would like to thank Pep, James and Kristian for their service to the club and wish them well for the future.
A statement regarding the management structure for Saturday's fixture at Manchester City will be confirmed in due course.
