Caretaker boss Monk taking Swansea job a day at a time

Garry Monk has admitted he has no idea how long he will remain in his role as Swansea temporary manager. The 34-year-old is still operating under the terms of his playing contract despite taking over as manager, and he did not receive a win bonus after the famous win over Cardiff.

He said: "I saw the chairman quickly after the game on Saturday and he said 'well done'. Then I saw him at the training ground briefly on Monday. I still don't know how long I'll be in charge - I'll just get on with it.

"I didn't get the win bonus after Cardiff - I'll have to sort that out. Maybe I can cut a deal with the players.

"In all seriousness, I haven't focused on it at all and I haven't even had a chance to think about that.

"My agent will sit down with Huw at some stage and sort out all that stuff - it's not a concern to be honest."
