Swansea City part company with Garry Monk

9th December 2015

Swansea City has today reluctantly parted company with manager Garry Monk.
With the recent uncertainty surrounding the club, the decision has been made in the best interests of Swansea City Football Club and its supporters.
Swansea City Chairman, Huw Jenkins, confirmed: "The decision has been made very reluctantly and with a heavy heart.
"To find ourselves in our current situation from where we were in the first week of September, and considering the drop of performance levels and run of results over the last three months, it has brought us to this unfortunate decision today.
"Garry took on the job 22 months ago with the backing of everyone at the club. And when you take into account the excellent campaign we had last season when we broke all club records in the Premier League, nobody foresaw the position we would be in at this moment in time.
"Bearing that in mind and the current uncertainty around the club, we felt the situation needed clarity to move forward.
"It was not a decision we took lightly, especially given Garry's history and standing within the club. And it goes without saying that we wish Garry all the very best for the future and thank him for his tremendous service, not only as a player over the last decade, but also as our manager. He will always have a warm welcome at this football club.
"We hope to appoint a replacement as soon as possible.''
No further comment will be made at this stage, but we will endeavour to keep our supporters informed of future developments.
