The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust has backed the Club Board decision to part company with Swans Manager Garry Monk. It expressed its disappointment that things had not worked out this Season for Garry but understood the Board’s concern at current results and the need to turn things around sooner rather than later.
Trust Chairman Phil Sumbler said; ‘Garry Monk has been a great servant to Swansea City and his success last year as a young Manager in the Premier League fully justified the decision to appoint him on a temporary basis in February 2014 and subsequently on a permanent basis. Garry has acknowledged that recent results have not been acceptable and ultimately the Club Board has to take tough decisions in the longer term interests of Swansea City.’
He added: ‘The Trust wish to place on record its thanks to Garry for his time at Swansea both as a player and Manager. His commitment has been unquestionable and his contribution to perhaps the most successful period in the history of our football club will never be forgotten. The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust sends him our best wishes for his future.’
