Swansea appoint Monk as new permanent manager

Swansea have confirmed that interim player-manager Garry Monk has been appointed as permanent boss after signing a three-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, according to Sky Sports.

Monk was appointed to look after first-team affairs following the sacking of Michael Laudrup in February, and was able to secure Premier League survival with time to spare when the Swans thumped Aston Villa 4-1 last month, in a result that also secured the club’s first consecutive league wins in 16 months.

Pep Clotet has been named as his assistant after serving as coach and Academy Consultant at the club since his arrival in 2013.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said to the club’s official website: “We are delighted to confirm Garry as our new first-team manager. As a board of directors, we carefully considered our next step because it was a very important decision for our football club.

“But having gone through that process, we unanimously agreed that the timing was right for Garry to be offered the job on a permanent basis.”

The news confirms previous reports that Monk was set to be offered the job, with the 35-year-old having overseen Swans take 15 points from the 39 available to them during his tenure to secure their continued status as a Premier League club.

His first game as the club’s permanent boss will be the last of the season, when Swansea take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.
