Monk has had to battle back after coming through at Southampton.
He told Absolute Radio: "Yeah, started at the very bottom and worked all the way up. Then went back down to the bottom and then worked my way all the way back up again. So yeah, I said before, I feel like I've earned it, you know. I've done it the hard way and just going to really just try and enjoy it now and work as hard as possible to stay here for as long as possible as well."
