Monk hoping Swansea keep hold of Laudrup

Swansea City club captain Garry Monk has called on manager Michael Laudrup to stay.

Swansea City club captain Garry Monk has called on manager Michael Laudrup to stay.

Monk added his voice to those calling for Laudrup to stay at the Liberty Stadium, admitting that the managerial departures that accompanied previous successes had proved disruptive.

"We don't want anyone to go, whether it's the manager or anyone else," he said. "We've lost our managers for a number of years now and managed to bounce back.

"Hopefully we don't have to go through the same again because it's important the club have some continuity. But we've lost managers in the past and maintained our standards and, if anything, actually improved.

"Speculation and what happens always affect you. You're never too sure what's going to happen or which way you're going to go, but the chairman and board make sure we will continue with the same philosophy, which is so important and has brought days like our win at Wembley."
