Monk confirmed as fulltime Swansea manager

Garry Monk has been confirmed as fulltime manager at Swansea City.

The former defender has signed a three-year contract having been given the role of head coach following the dismissal of Michael Laudrup in February.

"We are delighted to confirm Garry as our new first-team manager," Swans chairman Huw Jenkins told

Monk will be assisted by current coach Josep (Pep) Clotet.

Monk said: "It is the proudest moment of my career. I'm honoured the club thinks so highly of me to give me this chance.

"It's the opportunity of a lifetime - and one I fully intend to take."
