Swans boss on Irons link

garry-monk-swansea_3194699Garry Monk has totally removed himself from stories linking himself with the West Ham job.

The rather daft rumour started circulating earlier this afternoon but the Swansea boss was quick to kill it off via the BBC.

Monk has led the Swans to a record-equalling 47 Premier League points with six games left – four more than the Hammers.

Monk – in denying linkls to Upton Park – said: “West Ham have a fantastic manager in place. For them to be looking elsewhere – if they are – I think they’ve already got the manager there who’s had a fantastic season.

“I look at that type of speculation as a compliment to the way myself and the team have worked this season, showing we’re progressing and going in the right direction.”

  1. He’s a good young manager in my opinion, Howe could be better than him. Young managers need a chance.


  2. i don’t know monk had a good year lets see how he does for couple then judge him.

  3. At the beginning of the season you would not hav touched him with a barge poll and I still would not,he was lucky to inherit a good team and a top centre forward and even though he left his replacement is better than we have,
    Good luck to him at Swansea but not ready for the big time in London
