Monk hopes to have done enough to secure Swansea job

Garry Monk wants the Swansea manager’s job on a permanent basis, and hopes he has done enough to ensure his continual presence in the Liberty Stadium hotseat, reports Sky Sports.

Monk was appointed following the sacking of Michael Laudrup in February, and secured the Swans’ Premier League future with the 4-1 win over Aston Villa recently. Monk has confirmed that he has discussed the situation with chairman Huw Jenkins, but accepts that he will have to wait until the end of the season before discovering what the future holds for the 35-year-old.

Speaking at a press conference before Swansea welcome Southampton to their home on Saturday, Monk said: “We'll see. Of course I am hopeful.

“It is something I really enjoy doing, I've learnt a hell of a lot in a short space of time, and once you get a taste of it you don't want to let it go.

“I trust the board and the chairman and everyone that they will make the right decision for the club.

“I have spoken to the chairman. It was a review of what I have done this season and stuff like that, and going forward, how I feel about things and what I would do. You would have that chat anyway.”

Monk re-iterated his commitment to the club’s cause, insisting that he always intended to serve in his role as if it was his on a permanent basis, continuing: “I said at the start of all this that I would do it properly. I would do it as if I am planning for the future and taking the club forward.

“I think if I wasn't doing that, it wouldn't put me in a good situation. I have spoken to the chairman about the future, possible targets, positions you would want to strengthen within the squad.

“I've said from the start that what I want from when a kid walks through the door, from five or six years old to the first team, is that everyone understands what it means to play for this club and what it stands for.”
